Chess.

Post  Jamie on Sat 25 Feb 2017, 14:49

I've been playing a bit of a Chess of late, does anyone else play? I'm pretty new to it, but very much enjoying the game so far. If anyone wants to 'give me a lesson', I'll bring my Chess set along one Tuesday...

UPDATE:

Me and John have been playing a couple of games online, on chess.com. If anyone else wants to play a game or two online, let us know and I'll add your chess.com username to this list:

Jamie : cosmic4z
John : JonKninght

Jamie, you've reignited a childhood interest so I've bought a little set to practice with. I'll be happy to play with you. I'm hoping I'll improve by playing games with a guy at work too.

Great stuff Karl!

Yeah, there's something about Chess that very much appeals to me. Had a interesting (and close) game with Paul G 2 last night; which resulted in a draw (by agreement). Happy to play anyone, anytime though.

If you're interested in improving, there are loads of resources available online. This is is worth a watch; discussing the basic tactics you can employ to capture pieces etc: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv7_0svOlQU

Also, there's a chess.com app; if anyone fancies an online game (think my username is 'cosmic4z'). The chess.com app also has chess tactic problems, think you get 5 a day, and also a free daily chess puzzle to solve.

You've inspired me to reignite my childhood interest in Backgammon and Reversi. If you fancy a game of either, let me know. Smile
