I think the freak element in our population scares the bullies away. We do get some name calling though. I've heard that Scottish boy calling us Emos :'(

Here is how that chess game went, from my end:
Gaywood made a move.
I copied his move on my phone.
My phone looked at every possible move for the next hundred moves, and chose the best one.
I copied my phone's move on the website.
Repeat until victory is mine :DD

I showed him my phone at the weekend, displaying the last move of the game we were playing. It's a shame no-one got a photo of his face when realisation dawned.

Unlucky, Squirt. Awesome attackage, I was really hanging on by the skin of my teeth for a while. You just seemed to run out of pieces to push your advantage home and got caught by a bit of a sucker-punch at the end.

Well played, sir.

Slightly odd opening against Gaywood there. Not sure why/how I did that.

I didn't notice your sneaky queen attack in time! Stupid king, thinking he's all safe behind those pawns while the queen and rooks are failing to bash through at the other side of the board.

Anyway, well played! Hooray for chess!

I am slightly cross that Mr Chris's ineptitude allowed this game to time out over Easter, as I was probably going to capture his queen via a tasty discovered attack when moving my knight into check. (via Qa6 Nxc7 ck). Not only do I have Bxa6 from there, but also Nxa8. This came after a number of moves of carefully chasing his queen around the board.

Whereas his timing out of this game only saved the poor doddering becardiganed chump from further humiliation courtesy of my FLASHING FISTS OF CHESS FURY.

Yeah, sorry - your fault for moving so quickly after my last one. ;)

I had you carefully distracted by my queen, too.

A perfect example of how one wrong move can fuck you up irredeemably.

Now that is a drubbing. Mr Chris entitled his first game with me NERDBOY SMACKDOWN. I think he overestimated his chess skills.

I know I still owe you a move, Rodafowa. I can't bash out moves in your games because you've already punished me for one mistake.

No hurry, Doc. It's a surprisingly complex position given that we're only half-a-dozen or so moves in.

The fact it times you out annoys me. If the other person pushed a button to say "fuck this, I'll take the win" then fair enough.

It's more important when playing strangers, I would guess. You can set it really long though, up to several weeks. Plus the site has a "vacation" mode that stops all your timers as well.

Does anyone have 'Chess With Friends' on their smartphone?

I have it, and would like to play it with people. It's free to get.

The only person I have thus far played on it is Myoptika.

After I crushed him, the second game went at a very slow pace until it timed him out. Note - to time out you have to not make a move for 4 weeks! He's a terrible person.

So, people, come play chess with me. Username is 'Curiosity'.
