Two elderly chess aficionados were locked in a never ending game, at the master level. It continued right through the Christmas season, unending, day and night. At one point the wife of one came into the room and begged them to quit for the Holidays. When they ignored her, she lost her temper, saying; "You two will burn in Hell." They continued to play.
The scene switches to Hades, shortly thereafter, with two
chess nuts roasting on an open fire.
