Chess: Robert vs. Everybody, Again — With a Twist: 1/2-1/2

As before, Robert takes on the world (or at least the world of logged-in MuseBloggers). The twist is that he will keep all of his pieces on “his” side of the board, the first four rows, unless forced across because it’s the only move available. White will be hunkered down for trench warfare; Black will have to go in and dig him out. Ready? Let’s go!
 
 


Chess: Everybody vs. Robert, 0-1

Ever get the feeling that the whole world was against you? That’s the idea behind this chess game. In a desperate ploy scientific experiment designed to see whether it’s possible to keep a game here moving forward to a conclusion, GAPA Robert Coontz is taking the black pieces and allowing anybody on MuseBlog to move for White. Trash talk, taunts, and analysis are encouraged. Let’s see if this works.

First move, anybody?

Chess: MuseBlog vs. MuseBlog, Game 2, 1-0

Game 1 is over. Guess what: MuseBlog won. Congratulations, MuseBlog! Also, condolences, MuseBlog. Better luck next time.

So here we go again. As before, anybody can make a move at any time. You don’t have to restrict yourself to playing one color, but please don’t make more than one move in a row. The game will be over too quickly if people just use it to play themselves.

Attention, Chessplayers!

If you lose interest in a game and know you’re never going to play another move, don’t just leave your opponents waiting and wondering forever. Instead, please resign by clicking the skull-and-crossbones button on the game’s command bar. Then we’ll calculate new ratings, and everybody can move on.
