    I do too -
    But I am not much for on-line gaming.

    I taught my wife -
    She taught our kids -
    When my daughter beat me, I figure I did a GREAT job of teaching -

    LOL!!!

    Can't get my son to play. He is probably way better than me, but thinks I'll beat him again. I wouldn't mind losing to him, I know I can get him back. A little competition is good for the old noggin.

    heck, we could just play right here. Call out your moves and keep track on your own chessboard.

    1969. Nixon had just moved into the White House.

    I gave up chess and I took up shooting.

    Never looked back.

    I figured we could all just set our own chessboards and choose an opponent, if your chessboard isnt already labeled for numerical and alphabetical co-ordinates heres a link to print one out (white towards you)http://chess.about.com/od/rulesofchess/ss/Boardsetup_7.htm

    Just set your board and PM or post your move to your opponent and keep track of the game on your own board. it really sounds fun. Im really looking forward to playing some good chess games with you guys;)

    How does this look? We can also use a chessboard at home like someone already mentioned. This is the best I could do on the colors. We can use email or post it here. BUT, this place will have so many moves, what can we do about that? This thread could run in the hundreds per day, depending on how many games are being played.

    If it ever gets set up right, we can play each other in tourneys. Round robin, of course. I think it would be cool to be able to watch, too! What do ya'll think?
