Hi there, maybe someone is interested to play a little bit of chess from time to time? :)

I suggested that chess was the penultimate board game and got no reaction. Perhaps you were not around then. :p apy:

I apologize. I must have missed that post not to react. Indeed it is.

uh... I thought "penultimate" meant "next to last".

Then "last" really becomes penultimate to "next"... :bonk:

I've tried using penbest, pengreatest, and penparamount, but people just look at me funny. :wacko:

Next to AACW, chess is also a really really good computer game. :thumbsup:

Maybe "acme"...?

Hey! How 'bout this:
Chess is the acme of board games!
Or maybe, if you like checkers or Parcheesi or Go just a little bit more than chess, you might say, "Chess is the penacme of board games!"
(No, that's not a real word, I just made it up. But it sounds kinda cool, don't ya think?)

BTW: :o I'm sorry about sounding snooty and stuff, in that post I did yesterday. I didn't mean to. Tag, Jabberwock, I apologize. I didn't mean to sound like a school marm.

Contritely,
Havely

PS Who made up that stupid word "penultimate", anyway?! I think they were trying to snootily sneak something by us, myself. It sounds like it means the opposite of what it does, ya know?

This is a site to play online vs a computer

http://www.shredderchess.com/play-chess-online.html



Shredder engine was number 1 some years ago, right now computer chess is absolutely dominated by Rybka chess engine

Bright idea! (I think)...

Hey! Why doesn't someone (besides me) start a social group for chess? That way, the thread won't "sink" if nobody posts for awhile.
