I would like to play a game of chess.
It will take forever.
If you would like to play, respond.
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?
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.
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.
Interesting game, guys. But can you please speed it up, because one move a day won't entertain me.
Nobody. Would you mind if i followed the game though? I may pick up something. I won't meddle in the thread any more.
Uh, I kinda need a board in front of me.... Let's see, w-p-pk4 and b-p-pk4
*yawn* I always preferred to play than watch *yawn* timer's clicking guys.
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!
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. It really becomes a game of memory of recalling past plays. Can be real fun though!
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
chessguru.net...does it have rules and all? or just a place to play? I know..I could just go look, or google it..or whatever. Im lazy today.
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.
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.

I've finally decided on a gift for my oldest son. He noticed that I'm selling an old chess set in a yard sale and made a comment. He's in his late 20's, likes medieval history/fantasy. I was thinking about a nice set with medieval figures. Or should I stick with a more traditional set? I've...

If you do, can you tell me how you started playing, what got you interested to keep playing and learning about the game and what rating or level you're at? Moreover, could you tell me the struggle of being at your level and what you might not understand to get better in chess?
