    So are you guys actually organising a bit of chess? I'll play. Though I'm not very good at chess unfortunately. Here you have one gracious loser that enjoys being thrashed :P

    i played drinking chess a lot last week, but by the end my main concern was sitting upright as opposed to winning. though losing is not advisable- losers drink the remaining pieces on the board. hehehe

    Go originated in China. But it's not that big anymore. Used to be the only board game before Chinese Chess was invented. It is the undisputed King of Strategic Games. Interestingly, this is one of the few games computers are really shite at.

    Can I join the club?

    It's a bit like Othello. You have a 19x19 board and one person is black and one is white and you try to surround your opponents pieces.

    Code:
    x 
    xox
     x
    Say X is black and O is white, X would take O's piece in that situation, but obviously it's a bit more difficult than that

    I'm rubbish at it (along with all board games).
