It's time to announce GameSquad's fourth annual chess tournament! If you've ever wanted to try your hand at the Royal Game, now is your chance! Our tournament is a friendly & leisurely affair that features a good mix of players that will allow all skill levels - from rank beginners to expert players - to have a good time.
This year's tourney will be a bit different in that it will be a Chess960 tourney. Chess960 - aka Fischer Random
“A recorded game of chess is a story in symbols, relating in cipher the struggle of two intellects; a story with a real plot, a beginning, a middle, and an end, in which the harmonies of time and place are scrupulously observed; the fickleness of fortune is illustrated; the smiles of the prosperous, the struggles of adversity, the change that comes over the two; the plans suggested by one, spoiled by the tactics of the other - the lures, the wiles, the fierce onset, the final victory. An hour's history of two minds is well told in a game of chess.” –

I can't wait to see what 2011 will bring!
To everyone at GameSquad, both contributors and community members alike, thanks for making it a great
Just a quick note before my PC suffers a ‘China Syndrome’ event and melts down to a goopy pile of slag: my presence on the Ansible network may be unpredictable this week. You see, the Northeast is suffering from a record heat wave right out of that classic Twilight Zone episode, The Midnight Sun. Over the last three days we have been in the upper 90’s, with today establishing the dubious record of breaking into the TRIPLE DIGITS! To put this in perspective, last year Long Island never broke 90 degrees once…so yeah, this is proving to be quite a surprise.
