My cousin floated the idea of a chess drinking game a while back. With shot glasses as the pieces. I did the math and found that, even if you make the pawns a shot of beer, that's a potentially lethal amount of alcohol on the board.

Here's a fun idea for a custom chess set. This is only my side, there is nothing special for the opponent's side.

Why are the unicorns standing in for the bishops instead of the horse-shaped knights?
Because I already have knight figures and nothing else can perform magic.

If I despise Glimmer so much why do I have a Glimmer figure?
To practice ridding myself of hatred.

A lot of these chess puzzles are bullshit. There are multiple solutions.

"Huh, huh, huh, you're supposed to pick the BEST solution."

Okay, do I get the full 5 minutes I'm allowed in a legal tournament game?

"No! You only get 10 seconds or even if you get it right you still lose!"

So you're telling me the puzzles are designed to make me lose even if I get it right on purpose because they're bullshit?

"Apparently."

Today is International Chess Day.

Chess is the only board game that got its own Broadway musical, which was optioned for a movie a decade ago and then nothing happened.

If Water Polo is the sport of kings then Chess is the sport of emperors or better.
