OMG, Verily, we have the SAME chess board! Well, it's my landlords, but that's kind of trippy! I always start by moving my knight.
Nice ... Thanks for the visit AND I totally agree .. this a chick flick waiting to be made and definitely a beach book needing to be written.
It's beautiful isn't it? Mr. Frank's birthday present. I LOVE to play but I stink at it. Yes Rain darling.....very trippy indeed. (twlight zone music)
Oh I stink too, lol. I don't have any strategy, I just move all my knights first, then the pawns then my Queen usually gets picked off and I'm done, ha ha!
My dad taught me how to play chess when I was a little girl. I used to be pretty good at it. I have never known the language of chess: Knight 3 to your mom's aunt. You know, that kind of thing.The chess board is to be coveted. It is awesome. We bought Brett a carved marble chess board in Belize, but one of the pieces broke. Dammitol.
I just recently learned about castleing..since my first lesson from 1972. I call them horsey/sliders/victims and I'm the one that does*** why'd ya do that? after a move. I LOVE this game it makes my blood race sometimes. I gasp, I giggle, I screechingly admonish any foul to me and gloat horribly when I have pounced. BUT, I have also*** are you sure you want to do that? Mr. Frank wipes me all over the board but sometimes I get a good shot in. He is a wonderful teacher.
