Chess Problems #1

I was pleased to notice Windows Vista shipping with Chess Titans, a decent chess simulation. I was pretty good as a kid, even if years of abstinence have obviously softened me enough to have a good deal of catching up to do before I dare sit across the table from the old Communist chess master next door.

White makes checkmate in one move. Tip: Horse moves.

Now, nine queens would kick some serious ass... A man's got to have his future prospects clear. Chess, they say, is the game of the ancient Indian military strategists. It certainly holds its own as far as games developing structured and extended thought go. And no, I was not playing the baby level in this game. =)

Have you tried the asian game GO? One of the few games that require the use of both sides of brain, hence it is recommended for the demented amongst us, and a game so cool, that a kid can beat a computer, unlike in chess..

Besides it's simple to learn the rules for it, and it is very much a spiritual game, as you can easily see after playing few rounds, greed, pride, lust, anger, all these nice little jedi mindtricks help your opponent to win you, but resting in the natural state of the Mind helps You.

I recommend the game.

Hnefatfl is also one pretty addicting game little bit similar like chess, but it was a viking game. It was taken in to the burial mounds and viking chieftains lost their heads for a game gone sour..
