  offramp: "Prince Charming" was a number one hit record for the British popular beat combination named "Adam Ant And His Merry Old Ants".

It features the line "Ridicule is nothing to be scared of".

Those words were inscribed on Adam Ant's tombstone when he died of gunshot wounds in 2015 following an argument over the ownership of a comb.

  Sneaky: Offramp, please!! <Adam Ant's tombstone> Stuart Goddard aka Adam Ant is alive and well! You scared me with your little jest. I hate to be the humor-police, but making jokes about the living having passed on is very poor taste. In my opinion. Anyhow, I just felt that I needed to set the record straight.

Now about the game: it's like any other of the Prince Dadian's. Dashing, amazing, chock full of sacrifices, and probably composed from top to bottom. :-)

Oct-24-16  Ayaend: Yes Prince ADM has only won games! No draw no lose, so it's more than suspect and his win is very impressive by full sacrifice etc, composition is obvious.

And at the end mate in 2 is forced at move 22 by Bf7+ and after Qxf7# or Qf6#

  Once: Sorry, but it has to be done. This is what we were inflicting on each other in the early 1980s:

It is a sort of punk meets white rap meets new romantic dressing up in frilly shirts and looking moody. With a hint of Jethro Tull medievalism thrown in for good measure.

Express yourself, said Adam Ant. Dress like a highwayman, if you want to. Borrow design ideas from the native Americans. Find your own style ...

... which for most fans meant dressing exactly like Adam Ant, down to the same face make-up and lookie-likie clothes. Which wasn't quite what he had in mind.

The game is a prince Dadian so we're automatically cautious - expecting it to be a fake or a flunky hired to fail.

Oct-24-16  WorstPlayerEver: <Once>

I thought you meant Madonna

Oct-24-16  goodevans: Another of Mr Ant's ditties included the lyrics <I feel beneath the white there is a redskin suffering from centuries of taming>.

With this he drew attention to the plight of Native Americans whilst simultaneously offending them by using a derogatory term.

  thegoodanarchist: No one goes to Mingrelia anymore. They ought to fire their tourist board.

Anyway, the exchange rate is too high. Their currency, the Mingrelian skolinkinlot, is now up to 3.14159 per Japanese Yen. It's ridiculous.

Oct-24-16  Dirkster: Oh no! Not the "Idiot Prince" again!! Surely there are more kibitz-worthy games out there than those by this aristocratic fraud! (Speaking of which, does Donald Trump play chess???)

  kevin86: White wins black's queen-then bring up ANOTHER pawn to queen.
Oct-24-16  RookFile: I'm not an opening expert, but proper play with the King's Gambit probably involves something other than moving 6 pawns in the first 8 moves and hoping for the best.

  Domdaniel: I must agree with Sneaky. Adam Ant is alive and well, and 'jokes' to the contrary are in dubious taste.

'Adamant', of course, is a kind of toilet - also in poor taste.

I'm not sure exactly what Once means by 'Jethro Tull medievalism' ... the inventor of the seed drill fostered a technical revolution in 18th century agriculture.

Of course the *other* Jethro Tull, the one where Ian Anderson sings, had what might be termed a medieval mode -- 'Minstrel in the Gallery' etc.

But there's nothing medieval about the brilliant 'Thick as a Brick'. "I've come down from the upper class to mend your rotten ways..."

Prince Dadian was a Dadaist.

I conceive a deep abhorrence for this scoundrel Andrey Dadian and his fraudulent fabrications!

Dead or Alive? Now he knows...

He's one of the funniest people posting at this site

If you can't handle sarcastic wit, put him on ignore


Oct-26-16  ragtag: <Prince Charming> happy ending for a villain
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Thank you <morfishine>.

Everyone knows that I am the Louis Pasteur of premature obituaries.
