The Oldest Game to be Played on a Board of 64 Squares!
« on: May 18, 2011, 12:25:34 AM »
I am of course talking about chess! (checkers is a game for monkeys!)

So I hear some of the faceless masses inhabiting this forum know how to push pawns.  In case some of you want to play verified MotKers, let this thread be the haven of handles for people who want to play chess!

I have an ICC account whose handle is ActionDan (it's expired, so I need some coins)
I have a chess.com account whose handle is also, unsuprisingly, ActionDan!

Out of all the free chess sites there are, I think chess.com is the best for the services it provides and the quality and ease of play it offers.

Of course, handles from other sites are appreciated as well!  So what are you waiting for?! Let's play some chess!

Oh wow, was I confused. I thought he was talking about the world's oldest profession.  :o

Chess and Go are both cool games.

CHALLENGED!

Perhaps we could play a game? Those that get challenged may scream "CHALLENGED!" to a target of their choice?

I congratulate the winner on his complete stomp of his opponent.
