game: Chess

My wife and I have decided to play every board game/card game we own (including every game that we have an official set of rules for + the necessary equipment to play – close to 80 games), and blog about them together. Here’s one now:

Anyone Can Play Chess WITH THIS COMPLETE SET OF LARGE CHESSMEN AND CHESS BOARD

Game: Chess
Overview: A two-player strategy game in which players move men to try to capture their opponent’s king.
Edition: Wm. F. Drueke & Sons, Inc., published some time after 1963. Plastic men with felt bottoms and an unreasonably large, green box. Very retro and 100% awesome.
Duration: about ½ an hour

Winner’s Impression (Daniel)
My very favoritest game. I mean, come on, it’s chess. If you don’t like chess, you might be a bad person.

Loser’s Impression (Lynn)
Chess frustrates me because I know if I knew some strategy I could be a lot better. But I don’t. Even though we own a strategy book. So I continue to play with my gut. Which involves chaos and carnage. And, today, a particularly humiliating loss.
