I don’t know what’s coming over me lately because I’m usually not into doing this kind of thing, but surprisingly I have yet another idea for a game, well more like a way to incorporate a game. I remember a while ago there was a thread where we talked about the game of Chess, but never really played with each other, at least not here. I was reluctant at first with this because the idea seems like…too much busy work for a lack of a better term but you guys be the judges – Not sure how many Chess players are still here but if you own a board, post a picture of it, then move one of the pieces as if you’re playing with someone.
Next another member will post their own board, setting it up just like the previous person’s board including whatever piece they moved, and respond with your own move. Then the previous member will do the same and it’ll just go back and forth trading pics until someone wins by checkmate, the game reaches a draw, or someone concedes defeat.
This way the whole forum can watch and spectate and it gives people a chance to show-off and use their boards. And while there’s only two players to one game, another pair can get their own started. Just post your own board and wait for a response, or Tag someone in particular you’d like to play against. So does this make sense? Sound like fun? Is it something that can work or is too much work? Maybe spawn a bunch of copycats? Unlike my previous game idea, I’m undecided on this which is also why it’s here in the Lounge.
Just an example.
