    damn we got a question this morning on trivia.. it was sort of a challenge so i answered polo for "whats the game of the kings"

    and stupidly the answer is horse racing, i was too nervous and i only thought about a sport that has horses in it, and that was what came into me mind first.. stupidly wrong

    My hobbys include Chess. This has lead to a lot of stick from my friends. Thus i ask you, is chess really such an uncool hobby to have?
    chess is a good game that requires skill and tactics.

    helps mental agility too.

    probably better than a lot of hobbies.

    so true. i think chess is great fun, and i really enjoy a game, but it definitely cannot be classed as the stereotypical "cool"
    but hey, who cares

    Chess - I've never known why people think it's "uncool" - although it's not really a game I'd choose for relaxing. Requires too much brain power to play chess and the only time I came remotely close to winning I had to think like crazy and took ages on each of my turns. Cus I kept on losing to the same person and he just laughed at me til I got so mad I decided to take the game seriously. I was only 12, playing against a 14-year-old and that time we were both reduced to a king each :rolleyes: It's officially a draw but on the board I was the one chasing him, so I consider it as me winning

    It's simply a game that requires a good mind and generally the ones good at it are the intelligent bunch. People who think it's uncool is probably either jealous or they don't care lol.

    Long story short - I like chess Not something I'd do for a hobby though.

    i dont know what that means. If you are laughing at chess then you are a moron. Hardly surprising that your location is 'in a girls bossom' and that you have posted 5000 times, clearly suggests that you are the loser here.
