Check and Mate

2 May

Because this joint needs a bit of class.

The bitch of it is, this is an art display!!

This should just be a parlor game. Sigh…Norwegians… 😉

    So, who wants to play? Because I would pass out at two pawns and a rook.

    Too highbrow for me. Fill em with beer, and we’re on!

    Fine. Instead of wine, make it small salmon canapes.

    I can’t play chess… but I could clear the reds if I had to!

    It’s a legit variant… each piece is filled with the appropriate (points-based) amount of booze, usually in two colors, and you have to drink the ones you capture.

    Standard chess rules apply, except you can cheat as long as the other person doesn’t notice. So if you’re good at chess, you quickly develop a handicap. 😀

    Chess is sort of like beer pong, right?

    I spent over an hour on the phone with a Mom in New York State this afternoon who sent me an e-mail after reading my post from the other day.

    She asked if I would be willing to talk to her, and asked me to send her my phone number – she is having trouble dealing with her daughter coming out.

    I love the Internet – it was like talking to a person I’ve known all my life (she’s just as nutty as I am…..).
