Well duh. Chess is awesome.

Vaarka swung his sword at the mod. However, since I am now incorporeal, he ends up accidentally striking the entire American landmass (It's a REALLY bastard sword), destroying both continents. Spiders are now at 50% of capacity.

Perhaps the problem with chess are computers that now outplay everyone.
On the internet you do not know what or who you are playing.
Big sites try to spot cheats but its not easy.
I play fast chess about 15 minutes for each side.

15 mins each is the fastest that I can play too -- I like that speed because it gives me the greatest mental stimulation.

On my present chess site my grade is about 1600elo but I believe it is too high and should be about 1400elo. I'm an average club player and have been for many years.

Only time I play chess is against a real person with a real board. So, not as often as I use to.

My portable chess set includes a clock.

I always use a clock now, so that opponents cannot stall and take forever.

15 mins each is a fast game.

20 mins each is a bit easier.

30 mins each is the longest that any friendly game should take.

I know several player who need at least an hour each -- that's just too long in my opinion.
