    Me too. I onced tried to become the World Chess Champion.

    Then I began to play Bridge instead.

    Let's see how many members are interested. Use this thread to sign up. If we can reach a sufficient number, I think we should give it a try.

    I sometimes play chess on Yahoo too... but nowadays, sadly, I don't have time for chess anymore.

    Whether NP88 would truly be allowed to use her username on a PC page remains highly doubtful to me.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    Thanks, Loki. I just had a quick game, and my score, whatever system was used, didn't seem to be listed.

    I like it, though, and I will return later for some more games.

    I'm sorry but I'm not willing to work with that website. Why should I pay for a email and a website when I can get a webmaster email plus subdomain for free? I'm certainly not going to pay for a website and email and then set up an arcade just to view their games. :speechles

    Hehe... quite right. Sorry I should have realised that link would not be very helpful to someone who doesn't own a website.

    Re: Chess - an ancient Aryan game

    Maybe now is a good time to try to revive this idea:

    Let's start a game now! Anyone and any number of people can play on either side — although it might be good for folks to pick a color and stick with it to avoid conflicts of interest. If you post a move and then discover that another player beat you to it, it'd probably be good to remove your post — first post for a particular turn will get priority. Also, when you move, add your move to the list of moves and copy the whole list into your post so that the whole record of the game gets carried on to the next post — that'll save people from needing to read back through all the posts to get the full record of the game.

    For the sake of consistency, let's all use the same notation. Being a bit on the conservative side, I prefer descriptive notation, and since I'm making the first move . . . well, let's use that!

    If you need to brush up on the notation:
    http://www.markalowery.net/Chess/Not..._notation.html
    http://www.markalowery.net/Chess/Dow...e_notation.pdf
    Attachment 45185

    Notice that white's moves are followed by black's on the same line:
    1. P–KR1 P–QR1
    2. R–KR2 and so forth

    One more note: I plan to check the box to cancel showing my signature on this thread. It might be a good idea for others to do the same, particularly if you have graphics in your signature — we'll have a lot of posts here (if folks want to play), and if we can keep their resource requirements down, I'm sure it'd help.

    This is going to be kind of a brawl version of chess, with players able to jump in at any time, so decide now not to be too upset if a ten-ply plan you've got gets sidetracked by another player — it's all for fun!

    Here it goes:
    1. P–K4

    If anything, I would suggest algebraic notation (1. e4).

    I don't have time to play at the moment, but I'd like to see a King's Gambit Accepted (1. e4 e5, 2. f4 exf4). Maybe you and your partner can take this humble desire into consideration. cyclone loves to play, I heard, and he is a good player.
    This is a placeholder for a signature.

    No time at moment, but I subscribe to thread to follow this.

    I just love playing the King's Gambit as white... so crazy, aggressive and exciting.
