Pro

in chess you must think about not only your move but the other pesons also. and in the other games like buzz word or clue. you have to be 3 move ahead to win esiliy. and have fun.

Con

Small character limit...


Advanced Squad Leader


A strategy game that took several years to develop with dozens of pages of complicated rules. Hard to get tougher than that.

Go


"While the baroque rules of Chess could only have been created by humans, the rules of Go are so elegant, organic, and rigorously logical that if intelligent life forms exist elsewhere in the universe, they almost certainly play go."
Edward Lansker


There are far more options to chose from in Go, making stratagem harder, and therefore more challenging.

It has been shown that whereas chess players use almost entirely the left side of the brain, Go "fully utilizes/integrates analytic (left brain) and artistic/pattern recognition (right brain) functions."


___

Pros sole argument is that in chess you have to think about the other persons move as well as your own, but that is the same in almost every board game. Therefore pro completely fails to meet his BOP.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro needed to make some argument that applied to all board games other than chess. He only argued that chess requires looking ahead, a common feature of board games. Con had excellent references for Go. The burden of proof was not met.
