Chess

CHESS


I love a good, sporting game of chess. It's one of my favorite pass times and I can't seem to get enough of it, lately particularly. I recently went camping and hurt my back the first night sleeping on it wrong, so I wasn't able to do a lot of physical stuff, so Colin and I just played chess most of the time that we weren't swimming or chilling by the fire. I've always known how to play chess and I've always been decent at it, but I never really took it up as a fun passtime until then when I realized that I really enjoy it.

Since then I've played probably 20ish games (in the past month). I am interested in researching strategies now and becoming even better, but it is rare that I have been defeated by my friends. My record is somewhere around 16-4. Are there any other chess fans around here that enjoy the game? I love it and would love to play you guys if you're interested. There's a free app called Chess With Friends (there's a paid and a free version; just get free). If you'd like to play download the app and send me a request. My username is calebhead94. Send me a request and let me know who you are and I'll be happy to dominate play you!

I love Chess! I've never been good at it(downright horrible at it at times), but I just love the strategy of it. I haven't played it in a long time because most everyone in my family I never see often, doesn't know how to play (and aren't willing to learn), or just don't like the game. And I would love to play you if I could, but I'm one of the few people in the world who doesn't own a cell phone. Hahahhaa

Anyway, I have this really nice Civil war themed set that I love. I always use it if I play a game.

I love chess too! My grandfather was amazing at chess and he and my dad could play for hours before their game finally ended. I'm not even a fraction as good as they are, but I love learning how to improve and playing chess in general. ^-^

I'll play anyone c:
@Glitch I can teach you an opening that almost no one uses and hasn't been evaluated that much.  Great for low level tourney's against random pubs.

Thanks, I think. XDD No but I really am terrible, plus I don't have an attention span long enough to concentrate.

Well of course you could lay a smack down on me, I'm lousy. XD

Until of course I go Ruler of the World on ya, and things get weird such as Chess pieces that become giant mechas and we can pilot them. 8DD

I haven't played in a few years, but I used to be pretty good. At least in my younger days.

Because my tab is Samsung, I can't get that app. If you guys are willing to make an account on pogo.com, I'd be down to play as well.
