    Nice photo. I would love to laugh but chess is the game I love to play while totally sucking at (I am a horrible chess player).

    I know how to move the pieces and I’m good at the end with traps, but I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to strategy. Kids just want to kill you and move pawns into queens, they are bold. I don’t let Pearl win, but I do warn her when she makes big goofs. She’s great at miniature golf.

      Sometimes we play suicide chess just to warm up and remember how the pieces move. You just move quickly into death traps and tell the opponent when you’re vulnerable, takes 5 minutes for a game, no winner.

    Picture’s adorable. Never heard of suicide chess, but it sounds like a fine premise for your strip. The cast has the necessary experience.

    Has one of those chess pieces been censored? What kind of chess set are you playing with, with a 7 year old?

    • TonyMillion says:

      No, it’s just a glitch in the shitty Kodak. We play on a 12″ Superior Folding Wooden Magnetic Travel Chess Set w/ Fitted Insert. No penis Bishops.

  5. I love your concept of chess fraught with “death traps”. A five minute game is a standard kind of chess game, usually called “blitz”, and is quite a lot of fun.

    You alternate universe of chess reminds me of a guy I met at the Bavarian Gardens bar who claimed to be a chess whiz. He was on the high school team and was the best player, he said. We set up to play a game and, having white, I went to move first. “Wait black goes first,” he said. “No its white that goes first, literally everywhere.” “On our high school chess team, black always went first!” Finally, I let him go first, and then I quickly cleared him off the board.

  6. I am not sure, I think that was the guy who told me, during the game, that he was a “philosophizer.”

    I’ve never won a game of chess, my son has been beating me fairly since he was five.

    that picture is adorable. i was bitten by the chess bug after spending some time in jail for yelling at my room-mate. (long story). anyhoo, after awhile i read up on chess tactics, openings gambits and wotnot, and suckseeded in completely screwing up all future chess endeavors. i am now desperately unlearning everything so i can go back to winning half the time like the good old days.

      I got thrown into drunk tank with a pal in Arizona when I was twenty. We had long hair, so we made a chess set from hairs and pieces of sculpted toilet paper. The guard said he was going to charge us with destruction of government property, the toilet paper.

    I play Mancala with my nine year old and Goats and Tigers with my ten year old. They’re both vicious.
