    I don’t see the thread Kuze mentioned a few days ago, so I’ll put up the sign-up thread for him.

    Anyone want to engage in the most violent that’s taboo in 37 different nations called Chess? As Kuze said, just give an “aye” in this thread so we can have a headcount.

    Lastly, anyone who has an easy to access website for free chess online, PM me or Kuze.

    My man. Think we should use the one you invited me on last time. Or maybe I can find a better alternative and post it here tomorrow.

    We can, but I completely forgot the website. Please handle that part (and almost everything else for that matter)? Just let me know when to close this thread and start the actual event thread.

    Thanks.

    Okay so this site looks decent enough. Plus no sign-ups required.


    https://lichess.org/


    Just click the "Play with a Friend" option on the right, select VARIANT: Standard and TIME CONTROL: Unlimited (or whatever) and you'll get a url. Share it with your opponent and once he clicks it, he is paired with you and the game starts.

    Pretty simple. Anybody wishing to give it a test run, hit me up.

    If you're interested in this event post your goddamn "aye" and preferred times also. Most/any matches will prolly happen on the weekends.


    Why aren't more people interested in this. 2nd best sport in the world for crissake.

    Gonna be funny if this event goes to finals immediately, if you catch my drift.

    If that happens we'll be going best of 3. And one of the matches will definitely be a rapid fire.

    I was thinking hard of some "middle-ground" time since the time diff is so opposite.

    Would 10pm ist be cool for you on the weekends. I figure that'll be something like 9~10 in the morning at your place.

    if you start your game now you might finish before first round of Mr Sakuga is over.

    It takes a week to start a REAL chess match.
