Practice games

91 posts in this topic

Thought i'd start this thread for any discussions relating to practice matches, as there are quite a few going on right now.

I'm finding that it's quite handy to have a few practice games first because until recently i hadn't played chess for a long time, and I think that's the case with quite a few of the other particpants aswell.

It's been years since i played!
