Has anyone played chess online? How does it work please
Haven't played on Yahoo in years, but it's worth a look. You may be able to set up a private game too, :)
Yes thanks Scott. But do you have to sit down and play a game all the way through, or can you take time out to sleep etc?
I doubt the latter.
When I used to play (by radio) you maybe got 1 - 3 moves per day?
Is that what you want?
No. I do like speed chess. But then again you can have games that go on for days
If you're looking for free and online, I'm guessing 'speed', as you call it, is all you'll get.
admit it Scott, you're a Kings prawn man :)
Prawn takes King's scallop.
And Horsey takes Queen...or is it the other way round?
Many, many years ago I played by letter. Maybe you want to try that. No problem with sleep there.
That costeth the money, for stamps and such
What are stamps??? haha ....
But we used postcards, that was a cheaper rate.
How much did you pay for the postcards though?
Nothing, you bought them at the PTT and they cost the price of the stamp - I think it was 12 Pfennig a piece.
So for a short game of chess. Say 12 Pfennig once every 2 weeks for 4 years (= 1248 Pfennig)
It never took 4 years. And I played with a Grandmaster. I was usually chess mate very fast. But I learned a lot.
why wouldn't you want to play a fast game online
