    I played it as a kid. Several months ago - p!$$ed as a fart - played a mate on MSN .
    Next thing I knew Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition came through the letter box. That was a bad drink-fuelled idea. XFire says I've only lost 34 hours of my life to it but I know it must be at least 3 times that. :(

    Spent hours playing chess on my Commodore 64 long long ago...

    Most of those hours were spent waiting for the game to reload from the tape every time i wanted to start a new round :D
  • It did make for interesting telly though, when Nigel Short took on - and IIRC got thumped by - Gary Kasparov. Quite incredible intellects involved there, which is precisely the reason why I give the pastime a very wide berth!!
