    I know how to play, but I never win against the computer on Chess Titans. It is on the lowest difficulty, and it usually goes down to 1-3 pieces each in the end, but I can't win. I guess I don't know how to play to win, does't help that I don't really think before I make my move of have any sort of strategy.

    I learned how to play when I was like 8-9, from my cousin who was a couple of years older. He was decent so I basically served as his training dummy. Obviously when you lose every game you grow to hate the game, so to spice things up and keep me interested we would come up with weird variations, like cramming all the pieces in one of the corners and playing diagonally, stuff like that.

    My favourite variation was one where we would separate the board in half (it was one of those portable chessboards that closes from the middle) and then to move pieces from one half to the other you had to "ride" the horses. Ah, fun times.

    You are lucky, my dead father always tried to cheat me at the end.
     
  4. Learned chess when I was 7 from my aunt and have played ever since, placed in a provincial tournament. But I'm not afraid to admit that the computer chess simulator has beat me more than afew times xD

    Me too! Except my dad taught me, and I was horrible, too.
    One of my favorite variations involves getting my special 12x12 board, and putting each of the pieces in regular position but two away from the edges of the board, and acting as though the two sides wrapped around each other. It's kind of hard to explain, though. :)

    I have been playing chess since I was 7 and usually beat computer's at chess until recently I was beaten in 5 moves by an "advanced" chess program that was set on extra hard mode. Really that's all I have to say about chess.

    Chess... isn't really something you can casually discuss, is it?

    What! *RAGE FACE* How can you say something like that?! Chess is just like Pokemon, a battle of minds and tactics between two people! Learning to adapt and overthrow the techniques of your opponent! There are secret combinations of moves that only the most skilled Chess players know, other common tactics can be discussed in threads like this one. We can share are most exciting Chess moments here: are TRIUMPHS and our DISASTERS!

    So to answer your question, my friend:

    Yes, you can discuss Chess.

    That made me remember when I was in fourth grade, every day that we had indoor recess (raining, snowing, etc.) we always played chess, and I always destroyed everyone. Good times...

    Awww, chess :3

    How serious are you with chess? For me, I know a few tactics, but I never bother to memorize openings and such. I vaguely remember a few famous ones, like Sicilian, but I never knew the sequence after the 2nd move. XD

    So yeah. I'd consider myself pretty good with chess, but not tournament-level good. As for chess games, I prefer playing with a friend compared to a computer because the computer seems to see through all your tricks >_>

    Has anyone ever tried Chess960? (I believe that's the correct number... lol)

    Its like that at first. When you try it a bit more and come up with your own strategies, you'll understand it better, and have more fun.

    Whitn3y Pretty Princ3ss!

    I'd say what happened was, he moved his Kings Pawn forward and your bishop and Queen (or other bishop) were staring at the opening like a big V and it's pretty much checkmate from there.

    I used to love playing chess as a kid! I was part of the club in my school even. We held tournaments and had lots of fun, as lame as that sounded to other kids ahaha.

    That was years ago though, and I was just a kid. No one nowadays wants to play with me, so my lovely chess set just goes to waste, really. :C
