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: I'd suggest that instead of playing whack-a-bug with the bit of code that's supposed to figure out what the "right" move number is, you should just go ahead and implement the move shift. After that, it won't matter how many bugs the rest of the code has, since the move ...

  Penguincw: Yep, congrats on winning the grand prize. I believe it's 100 years for a life membership, so I guess your membership will now expire in 2126 or something.

But too bad it's not infinite, considering you have been alive for 100s, maybe 1000s of years, giving kids gifts every Christmas.

  centralfiles: latest clue must be some kind of cipher why is anatoly karpovs name speeled out but not fischers also soviet rival etc... but i dont know how to crack it
Dec-23-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  centralfiles: I noticed many zeroes in the 16 photo clue
if you add the indivial numbers within each number, The sum of all 24 will then equal 192 which is 12X16. Though you can't create magic square with those numbers though I don't see how a magic square would help there would be too many symmetrical options anyhow.

As for Santa, how's it going Saint Nick? Must be great having your job, right?

Like, you work from home, work only one day a year, have lots of fun, get to wear comfortable clothing, work with kids, delivering smiles on their faces, you own some reindeer, you get cookies and milk as bonuses, you're the boss of countless dwarfs, you own your own home, and you're on top of the world, literally.

Don't forget to visit Antarctica. It's summer here, and there are some very well behaved chicks here. Some of us would also like to receive some tips from those reindeer on how they can actually fly, even without wings...

Sincerely, someone from the opposite pole.

2017 WJC pre-lim games are done, care for another prediction contest?

Same rules as always, 1 point for correctly predicting the winner of each game (and the relegation round), for a max of 9 points. Predictions due tomorrow at 13:00 (whatever time zone that is). I'll try to get <WannaBe> involved too. Post your predictions on my forum if interested.

Don't miss an excellent new Esklavos: http://www.esklavos.com/escape/fall...

And a new game designer affiliated with TomaTea: Amajeto. Similar, simpler but more prolific. :) http://www.amajeto.com/pages/amajet...

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> Found time for the new Esklavos...

Nice, though (like some other Esklavos games I've played) it had good graphics and seemed to end very abruptly. A lot of build-up that didn't really lead anywhere. What story? You have just escaped from the story!

But it wasn't nearly as bad pixel-hunting-wise as most Esklavos games I've tried :) No getting stuck looking for the onyl rite pixil.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heh... glad you sortof liked it. :)

I guess that *was* the story; Fede seems to like this "implied" style of storytelling. In fact, it's even realistic enough; if such an event occurred, chances are that the people affected would really never find out more than that. Annoying as that may be. ;)

Jan-25-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Then again, maybe he's planning more chapters - the structure of the game's title may indicate that. I would certainly like to play out more of this story too. :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Oh, and I see I forgot to tell you about another very good "small epic" game (but much longer than the Esklavos one) I played a while back - definitely worth checking out: Roc'h Arnev Island http://play.escapegames24.com/2016/...

  Annie K.: Hi <Switch>! :) Here's an Amajeto with a chess theme: http://amajeto.com/games/chess_swap...

Of course you don't have to actually know how to play... Pretty daring of them as is, since the average escape game player tends to run screaming at the mere sight of a chess piece. :s

Nicely brutal game you posted at my forum, btw. :D

Oh, and here's another game you might like, for the scenery: http://play.escapegames24.com/2017/... ;)
