Could be worse.  I've seen some people call pawns "prawns", and when you capture their piece they're always complaining that you "ate their prawn" rofl.gif

Rosewin, I'm not sure if you know about some of the options available on RHP, but if you would like to play chess games with others, you have two options there.
* One is to click on the "Open Invites" icon, and see if there are players wanting a game. Sometimes there is nobody listed, but at other times there are dozens of people looking for opponents. This changes from minute to minute, as games are offered and accepted.

* You can also click on the "New Game" icon, fill in the boxes, and put yourself down as a player looking for an opponent.

After a while you will find this quite a simple procedure. ~~~ Just one suggestion to make your games more interesting both for you and your opponent; estimate your 'rating' and pick players who are slightly higher rated than you are.

Hope that was useful,
Karlis

Hey Rosewin,

Just challenged you to a game.  The colour choice was set at random, and so whenever you're ready, you can start us off original.gif  Should be fun

Show off !!  That prawn statement was funny huh ? Interestingly enough as some people call pawns, " prawns", my mother calls prawns, " prongs " .
What a visual, have you ever ate a prong before ? haha

Sorry Rosewin, I'm a bit dense sometimes. and I obviously misunderstood you. original.gif anyhow, PA has started a game with you, and if you would like another UM player, please feel free to start a game with me; I don't mind which colour I play. As you know, I'm logged in as KarlisUM on RHP.

Looking forward to a game,
Karlis
