WTF Wednesday: Chess = Gateway to Insanity

So, many of you know I like chess. In the secret corners of my room I play against my computer at least once daily in the wee hours of the morn’. I am by no means a good player and I’m just starting to wind my brain around not getting sucked into fool’s plays and quick checkmate ploys. My computer is a cunning lil’monster when it comes to exploiting my impatient weakness…

Anyway, millions of people play Chess and thousands of people are amazing at the game. It fact, it’s not a game when they play it, it’s an art form.

This is just a short example of what’s out there, and really, this seriously shames my brain into not even wanting to play in the dark anymore. I don’t deserve to play a game the way I do when it can be played like this:

    Ooooh SpeedChess. If only you’d gone to my highschool where this was an everyday occurance at lunch…. of course… it wasn’t an every occurance performed by me. I either just watched or played at normal speeds. 😛
