ChessBookie Game

"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!" Game Collection: Lékó - Fireless and Boring?

Are you a player desperately in search for a system against 1.e4? Don't worry, friend, help is here. Finally, an easy and solid Black repertoire is available for everybody - the ultimate Owen Defense collection is complete and finished! Game Collection: Owen Defense

SwitchingQuylthulg: Why do people play during the other legs, trying to beat the other 1K starters? Statistically, any given player starting with c$1,000 has better chances of winning a prize during the Winter Leg than during, say, the Summer Leg; since there are more prizes available, this ...

SwitchingQuylthulg: <FSR> If Black wants to try ...Nc6, the right line probably isn't 3...Nc6, but rather 3...Nf6 4.Qe2 and only then 4...Nc6 5.c3 e5. I never played that line much myself, but GM Blatny had OK results with it: Repertoire Explorer: Pavel Blatny (black)

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> I liked them, but not in a "wow, this is brilliant, I wish all games were like this" way :-) The pixel hunting was a bit annoying at times, especially in Magic Christmas Escape 1.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Some of my favorites... :)

Selfdefiant likes these cartoon-like games, but IMO his best games are those from two series.

(1) The SSSG (Super Sneaky Spy Guy) series that features beautiful mansions (usually guest houses) in lovely locations -


(2) The Asylum series - I usually don't like creepy games, but Selfdefiant manages to make creepy games not creepy. I love the way he finds beauty in abandoned, run-down buildings.


Esklavos has fun series such as Inspector Kloo (especially recommended 4 and above):, Magic Island (example:, Paper World, Ancient Forest, etc., etc.... and also beautiful stand-alones, such as White Light ( As a genuine artist, I consider him the best of the lot. :)


I started with their Pool Cocktail ( and have played everything of theirs I could find thereafter. ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Cross post. :) Yeah, sometimes they are a bit too pixel-huntish, but you picked random games after all - the ones in my previous post are some of their best. These are not "epic" (really large with serious plot) games though, I can recommend some of those too. :D
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: ...on second thought... maybe <Abandoned Asylum> ( would be a more classic example of Selfdefiant's Asylum series. ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> I tried Pool Cocktail and two other TomaTea games (Pool Cocktail 2 and Smile Escape), which I liked (especially Smile).

Unfortunately, I can't really say the same of Abandoned Asylum, Island Paradise or Inspector Kloo 4. Way too much pixel-hunting for my taste... by the time I finished Inspector Kloo 4 I was so conditioned that I tried to click on every pixel on CG's home page before I caught myself :-)

Fancy graphics, sure, but they made finding the Onyl Rite Pixil even more of a pain. Brightly colored low-resolution graphics may not have the same realism or artisticness, but at least you can usually tell where the items are.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heheh... yeah, they can have that minor side effect, pixelhuntwise speaking. ;D They are more enjoyable when you're not in a hurry and want to take the time to look at the beautiful scenes anyway.

I think both developers have listened to their players' complaints about this issue, though - most of their more recent games are a bit less of a pixel hunt. :)

Glad you like TomaTea - they are indeed the best for almost never being a pixel hunt. The Japanese developer Robamimi is also very good that way, plus nice storylines to many of their games, and some other Japanese developers are excellent too.

Btw, I also recommend Sniffmouse, for a great sense of humor, the funniest sound effects, and originality... ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Sniffmouse example:


For epics, there's the always wonderful, though often somewhat macabre, Hyptosis, of Lorestrome. For example, the charmingly retro Steelcurse:

My most recently finished epic game is The Rosefinch Curse by the Chinese developer T34 Studio: - it's a huge (almost 10 MB) game, so you'll need to instruct your Flash to give it unlimited storage size, but it's very very worth it!

  wordfunph: my 10k chessbucks today is your special day..

Happy Birthday, Switch!!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <wordfunph> Thanks, but I'm afraid the date is still off... at least as far as <my> birthday's concerned. My mother appreciates you reminding me :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Happy non-Birthday, <Switch>! Play any more of those games, or would that be too soon? ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> Thanks, and happy non-birthday to you as well!

Only played one escape game since the 22nd - Esklavos's Magic Forest Escape 4. And that was almost the same as Magic Christmas Escape 1, so nothing much to report.

Maybe later this week :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Thanks for your birthday wishes <Switch>! They are gladly recieved.

And in 4 month and 25 days it is your turn ;) As we dont want more of those false alarms..

All the best for further endavours in the bookiegame.You are doing more than well,as almost usual.. But right now, no action ):

  Shams: <Switch> Do you play the French Defense?
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Shams> I don't play the French, or at least not 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5. The openings I do play (1...b6 and 1...Nc6) occasionally lead to French-like pawn structures, so I'm not completely unfamiliar with the basic ideas, but I don't know it the way <Domdaniel> does.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: <Switch> What do you play with White, out of curiosity?
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Shams> 1.b3 used to be my main opening, but these days I mostly use various systems with Nf3 and/or d4. I have zero prep as White in anything other than 1.b3, though.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Here is another snoozefest for consideration for your "Uneventful, everyday, dull draws" collection: Beliavsky vs G Mohr, 1997. A great cure for insomnia! <Head falls to keyboard>
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <FSR> Thanks!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heh... Hi <Switch>, have you tried playing any more of those games lately? ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> Escape games? One, I think... Tomatea's Early Evening Escape. Alas, no PGN :)

Non-French games? A couple... I suspect the French would be happy not to be associated with this game.

  Annie K.: :) No PGN required for escape games... especially if I've already played them too. TomaTea is always good fun.

Wild stuff! Those Rook sacs are always good for a shock - funnily enough, I just played one earlier today myself. I'll dig it up in a bit. ;)

43.Qd8# might have been faster... then, I guess if you wanted fast wins you wouldn't play 15 0 :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heh, yeah, I kow I missed 43. Qd8#, akshly I play these games too fast... it's not like I want to play 15 0, I just want to improve my official "rapid" rating! ;s

My bullet junkie condition is getting worse, in fact, I even played a few 0 5 and 0 3 games yesterday, and what's worse, I won them, so that doesn't bode well for the future...
