Chess

Post by Marinus » Wed Aug 13, 2008 8:54 pm

(This is continued from the Y/N puzzle topic and as the title says it's about chess)

Well Darshan, apparantly you won, for I was out of time. Too bad :? :lol: Congratulations! :D

I think tomorrow I'll take a better look how that all works on that chess-site. Anyhow, I like to play without time. Beside that, for you are from New Sealand and I'm from Europe you sleep when I'm awake and I sleep when you are awake so maybe is correspond-chess a better idea. :D

Thanks for the game! See you later! :D :D

Edit: Here is the link to the chess site, if anyone is interested http://www.caissa.com/
As far as I know we are with 3 Wonderlanders there now :D

Oh no, I didn't. If it wasn't for the time control, I would have been in a lot of danger. :wink: The game was so horrible and unfair with the scoring. You lost more than 400 points. Terrible, it is! :roll: Thank you for the game as well. :D :D

Correspondence chess: I really don't know how this works on their site. I could play a game of it with you, because yes, it would be a lot easier (I hate how most of the wonderlanders are on the other side of the world). It would also mean, "I have one day to think of one move. 365 moves?" :lol:

Yeah, we'll take over the chess server! :lol: :lol:

I also played chess at other servers, but I think it's nice to play against people I actually know (well, at least kind of) now.

And Darshan, never mind! I'm sure we'll play another game soon. :P

Anyway, I'm on Caissa's Web right now. Like to login?

Sorry if it seems like I'm just bragging, but I just had to share this: :wink:

Some days ago, on Caissa's Web, I beat Rasputin. :o I was so excited! Just a few minutes ago, I beat Caissa, even more exciting! Well, I don't know if they're even different, but I think Caissa is harder...

I would like to know: Has anyone else beaten those evil computer opponents yet? They're EVIL. They don't like losing, and they won't lose too easily. :twisted: :P

Ben-09: I just don't understand why it's so hard to get a game with you?! :lol: :?

Really? I actually thought you were about 42.
:oops: :lol:
To Shorty, who was immortalized in an adventure.
To Marinus, who was my community older brother.
To Janet, who I will remember every time I wear a toque.

May these Wonderlanders find more adventures in passing than they ever had in life.

My username is BillyBobMaster.
I don't know where I live.
It is 07:55 for me right now.
But a tricky part is that I am not sure when I will be online or not. Usually I am not on right now. I am usually on in approximately 12 hours which would mean we would be opposite times. I am on more on on today and tomorrow and yesterday and the day before yesterday and the day before the day before yesterday than the day after tomorrow and the day after the day after tomorrow.

My internet is being funny and not allowing me to login though. I sent you a PM Mqdar saying that we are both online. My internet might work better in a bit of time.
EDIT: I see you're not online now. Nevermind.
ANOTHER EDIT: Marinus, I see you are online, want to play chess if I can get my internet to work?
ANOTHER EDIT: I see you're not online now. Nevermind. My internet isn't working anyway (even when I restart my computer).

Actually it was not a typo; At that moment I was just thinking that's it's written with an S, which would've been much more logical. The first European people who discovered New Zealand were Dutch, and they called it Nieuw Zeeland, to the Dutch provence Zeeland. Translated to English it would be New Sealand.

Edit: Billy Bob, I just saw that you were talking to me here. It was a while ago that I played on Caissa, and mostly correspond chess. Indeed last week when you bumped this topic I logged in again. I will see if I log in again and when you're online too, we may play a game. There seems to be only one hour time difference between you and me. Do you live in the UK maybe?

I'm not sure where I live but calculations from others have said that I might.

I can't seem to login. I login with my password and user name but it goes to a blank white screen.
