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: Nisipeanu vs M Sebag, 2003 is one example of the Ruy Lopez Exchange pawn endgame in action. As can be seen, with White's pawns on a3, b2 and c3 Black's queenside majority is completely useless. (If White is really careless, such a pawn formation can allow Black to play ...

To the tune of Don't Go Breaking My Heart- Elton John and Kiki Dee

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwJ...

Don't go solvin those clues
I couldn't if I tried
Oh homey if I use Wiki
Maybe if I use TinEye

So don't go solving those clues
You have to wait there for me
Oh homey when you click on that prize
You took it from me.

Nuuuukluuuuuuuuuu
Nobody knows it, nobody knows
When I was stumped
I was your chump
Nobody knows it
Right from the start
Gave it my heart
Gave it my heart

So don't go solving those clues
I won't go solving those clues
Oh yeah
Don't go solving those clues
And nobody told me

Nuuuuukluuuuuuu
Cause nobody showed me
And now it's up to me maybe
I think I can fake it
So don't misunderstand me
You put the fight in my eyes
Oh you put the burn to the game
I've got your prize in my sights

Nuuuuuuuuuuukluuuuuuuuu
Nobody knows it
When I was stumped
I was your chump
Nobody knows it
Nobody knows it
Right from the start
Gave it my heart
Ohhhhhh, gave it my heart

  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.

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...

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.

  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. :)

  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/...
