    I would like to play a game of chess.

    It will take forever.

    If you would like to play, respond.

    Hey Paradigm,

    I'm a sucker for a game. Are we going to play here in this thread? By posting "notation" of moves? Or did you have plans on playing elsewhere?

    And, just curious- why will it take forever? hmm

          I have a travel board I can make moves on. I don't have any place to leave up a game in the open, due to the fact that I have two cats who love to jump on tables. lol

          However, my travel set rests nicely on my desk in my room and that's the only table my cats are truly not allowed on under no condition. They've learned that much. lol

    Interesting game, guys. But can you please speed it up, because one move a day won't entertain me. wink

        Nobody. Would you mind if i followed the game though? I may pick up something. I won't meddle in the thread any more. smile

          You can meddle in the thread all you want. There shouldn't be a problem following or even playing the game with people talking in the forum thread.

          I'm not sure about Paradigm, but I don't see a problem with it. smile

    I apologize for the aborted game. It has literally been more than a decade since I last played. It never occurred to me that I couldn’t find the d@mned chess set!smile

      There are plenty of on line chess sites.

      I haven't played in thirty years,  I used to play regularly with a neighbor - we both liked to play very fast, not allowing more than a short time for moves.  It is an entirely different game that way - you need to see the board differently because there is no time for deep analysis.

    I like to play too.  Although I've never been particularly great at it, it's a very fun way to while away a few hours beside a fire with someone fun, whether playing fast or slow.

    I love playing the game!  I haven't played on line before; always with the board.  My kids have all three boards occupied... maybe I'll have to run out and pick on up just for us to play!

    Pcunix - I agree, it's totally different way of playing when it's fast.  Sometimes, we play with only 30 seconds for each move.  lol  It really becomes a game of memory of recalling past plays.  Can be real fun though!

    how do you learn to play?

    1. Haunty profile image81
      Hauntyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      First you need to learn the rules and how to set up a board, then learn how to attack and defend positions. The fun comes in when you learn some tactics. Basically, it's about taking over the center of the board leaving little space for the opponent to operate. Then defend your positions and wait for the opponent to make a mistake. chessguru.net

          I just goolged it myself. Checked out a couple of results and this one seems to be with rules and all without getting overly wordy. smile

      What Haunty said, plus it's a real exercise for the brain.  You have to think at least 4 moves ahead of your opponent.  Depending on the skill level of your opponent, you could  be performing visual gymnastics of all possible moves and variations in response to your move.  It takes time and a lot of practice, but it's extremely fun and satisfying once you finish the game.

      I'm not terribly good at playing anymore (head injury which has affected my memory) but I play to help improve my condition.  I use to play all the time and it is a lot of fun.
