Does anyone here play chess regularly?
Lately i've been more interested in playing it it's a really fun and sophisticated game.

I've recently started playing again. Usually with my gf or her little bro.

Next hendrix is like a a sidesplitting triumph of slapstick and scatology, a runaway moneymaker and budding franchise, the worst thing to happen to Kazakhstan since the Mongol hordes, and, a communist.


This is my sig!

Yeah, I play everyday against the computer. It is really fun, requires lots of thinking.
Also very satisfying, when you win in the end.

Took a summer camp course on it.


I was the only cool kid in the class.


And that class sucked

However despite the losers, I love chess.

"My computer beat me at chess, but then I beat him at kickboxing."
Felt like that was relevant

I play every once in a while. It's quite fun when you play against a challenging opponent, which are none cause I'm so good.

thats what i was thinking of, make a group, have some admins, organize schedules and make them play online, we should search for chess tournament hostings though, just in case it exists

maybe the first course of action is making an "official UG chess tournament/league" first?

sure, do you want me to make the group or are you gonna make it? we invite people and post a thread with a link to the group, we organize the schedules depending on the number of particiipants and i guess we would be ready to go

If there end up being big time differences as the rounds drag on (say, someone from Scotland faces someone from the US in the final and no one time is convenient for them), I have seen a chess site where you could take hours/days in between moves, and it'll save your game. It was kind of designed for games that can't be completed at once. I just can't remember the site...

EDIT: Well, this isn't the same site I was talking about, but it's pretty much the same thing
