Psst, I think she fancies you!

“Psst, the Queen fancies you.”

“Yer what, I mean I beg your pardon?”

“The White Queen, her over there. I heard a rumour she’s dreaming of naked pawn tonight.”

“Well she can dream on. Anyway I’m the wrong end of the food chain for the likes of her. ”

“She fancies you, I’m telling yer. I saw her wink to the bishop and hitch her skirts up.”

“Really, you reckon I’m in with a chance of seeing the royal bed chamber then?”

“Haha, only if you play your moves right. But it might be me she’s after. We do both look alike.”

“Oi you two, keep it down. The King’ll hear you and he’s planning to put his best foot forward and go a wooing too.”

“But he’s already got a Queen.”

“Not for much longer. There’s some big play afoot and her reign’s looking a bit tenuous according to the Black Knight. Never on the same square twice, always dashing hither and thither that one, us poor pawns can’t keep up. She ravished two White Knights and a Rook last time.”

“Do you think the White Queen’s that way inclined then too?”

“Hah, believe it, women when they get a bit of power, they’re all the same. So still keen on advancing two squares to see where it lands you?”

“Hmm, perhaps on second thoughts we ought to stick together and keep ourselves in check, mate!”

Now here's a take on chess that never entered my mind. Clever!

Well thats an interesting game of chess! Brilliant!

I do like this novel interpretation of the game.

What a great post. If more people could see chess in this way, maybe more would be playing it. My Dad loved a game of chess, but I never learned it.

Thanks. Perhaps just my warped mind, haha.

Standing out there in all weathers, the pieces must get up to something!

NorthernLight wrote on January 14, 2015, 9:21 AM

Certainly puts a different complexion on the game!

NorthernLight wrote on January 14, 2015, 9:24 AM

I very rarely play but I have played a couple of times with a giant set outdoors and it definitely feels like a different game.

Checkmate. What if I am black. I am the king and I can move in all directions even if it is one step at a time. emoticon :smile:

You just wish you had the turbo boost of a pawn to catch your queen at it.

brilliant - very very funny, which is bad as I just read it in a public library

NorthernLight wrote on January 14, 2015, 2:32 PM

As long as I didn't get you thrown out!

bestwriter wrote on January 14, 2015, 9:03 PM

I do not need to move the pawn. It protects my kind.

typo please read as 'king'

Marcel Duchamp - one of the "fathers" of Dada - seemingly abandoned art for chess. Maybe it was the sex.

NorthernLight wrote on January 15, 2015, 4:36 AM

...or the cubist effect of the squares!

Very entertaining! I like the photos of the giant chess pieces too. Although I don't play chess, I always kind of fancied a giant set in the garden.

NorthernLight wrote on January 15, 2015, 5:07 PM

Thanks, glad you enjoyed my little piece of nonsense. I would love a giant set in the garden too - maybe one day.

Very clever Tony .. the type of quality post that is needed to keep this site on track

NorthernLight wrote on January 19, 2015, 6:40 AM

I haven't been here long but this site clearly does have more quality. Long may it continue.

Why don't you just tell it to the Russians?

What a great idea...over coffee and glasnost in Reykjavik!
