Anyone who wants to play can tell me in here. Get your chess board and pieces ready, and we'll play!

Set the board up with you as Black. I'm going to be White.

The squares are to be identified as follows:

From your left to your right, the squares are 1 to 8.

Running away from you, the squares are A to H.

Therefore, your bottom left-hand corner is 1A. Your top right-hand corner is 8H. OK?

By the way, 1A is a black square. (Just so you know how to position the board!)

Who's first?

BTW

In proper chess rules - it's A-H along the bottom of the board, and 1-8 from the bottom upwards.

Just sayin'

Skoob.

OK, it will be as you say.

A-H along your bottom, from your left to your right. 1 to 8 running away from you, that's towards me, OK?

Move #1: Pawn from D7 to D5

Hang on MW

Let's get this right.

If you're white - it's A-H as you look at it. Left to right.

1-8 up the board from white's back line.

So if I'm black, my King is on E8

Your King is on E1

Kay?

King's pawn up two squares.

OK, look. This is what I expect working at the UN is like!

SET-UP OF BOARD.

Monkey is White. His left-hand corner is A1. His right-hand corner is H1.

Skoob is Black. His left-hand corner is H8. His right-hand corner is A8.

This post supersedes and cancels all previous ones.


First move: Pawn E2 to E4

He beat me last time Pinx.

Mind you - I had to agree to be black, which kind of concedes the initiative. And he has a little routine...

One trick pony mate.

Looks like it's a four person thread at the moment.

It's a free world.

Well, some of it is.

PS Wondered who would be the first to add a 'nude' to the madwoman doctor's name in a headline...

It's just my little rail against all these bloody 'nude photo' stories.

I'd like to think I make it abundantly clear from the title that there aren't any nude photo's lurking behind the headline.

We had a similar thing when I first started here about outsized genitalia stories, so I kind of threw one in as a protest.

That backfired big time.

It was on the most popular list for months.

It still gets hits.

Still, I suppose if it attracted readers to the site it was worthwhile.

Regards

Skoob.

Just type in Mckeith and pregnant into Google UK News and I'm top hit.
It's just gone a tad viral with 1200 hits in less than an hour.

Oh the shame...
