I just noticed that on four of my matches the timeouts have been suspended for 48 hours.  I'm not complaining (!) just wondering what was going on?

I think its because the website is doing something behind the scenes, or something to that effect.... as all of my matches have the same thing.

You're mine this time Talon! I'm really enjoying this game. grin2.gif

And it's neck and neck with Saruman at the moment, we're down to our queens and kings, it's a mad dash with the pawns, who will win!? Nail biting!

hello, i am new to this site, i was wondering if any one would like to challenge me, and also does anyone know any sites where i can play chess without having to join, thanks in advanced.


redhotpawn.com is where everyone here plays, you have to join though just as you did here, but it doesn't cost anything.

Why is it that "en passant capture" is one of the least known rules in chess? It honestly drives me next to insane when I have to explain to someone what it is in the middle of the game.

Hort is extremely right there... I play 1 min blitz games on zone.com and your knights are indeed up there.

Anybody else play blitz games?
