As part of the Test Huddle Birthday Party, we are hosting a few games.
One in particular is for everyone in the community to take part in.
Do you like chess?
We have just acquired a very special chess board here at Test Huddle Headquarters and we want to play a game.
How it Works
Comment underneath with which team you would like to play for (blues or reds).
The when the first game starts, each person in turn will be asked to make a move and move their chess piece.
So if you are first to go for the red team , you might say pawn at a2 to a3. Each player will take a go in turn. After the last player of one team has taken a go, it will go back to the first player of that team.
The game will run for the three days of the Birthday party. If the game finishes before that, then a new game will be started. Players can join a team at any time but not on the final day.
The will be prizes for the winning team.
Any questions, please comment below.
Best of luck.May 17, 2016 at 1:39 pm #11907May 17, 2016 at 1:53 pm #11911May 17, 2016 at 2:37 pm #11913Only available when logged in
Ok, so just to clarify the rules. Rows 1 and 2 are blue and rows 7 and 8 are red.
So to move you have to mention the position the piece is at and where you want to move to: e.g. a2:a3
I will take a photo after every move for player and upload it here.May 17, 2016 at 2:39 pm #11914May 17, 2016 at 2:46 pm #11916Only available when logged in
No probblem, I was simply going by standard chess notation 😉
But we’ll do your system.

As you can tell….no one here is an expert in chess…..this could be a short game!May 17, 2016 at 2:54 pm #11918Only available when logged in
Also standard gentlemens agreement as to the correspondence chess rules apply.
– Looking up online references to chess openings is ok.
– No use of chess engines for analysis 😉May 17, 2016 at 3:28 pm #11922May 17, 2016 at 3:34 pm #11925Only available when logged in

@Gerald: I’m sorry but I can’t seem to make sense of your last move. Bishop on F-lane 5 steps down, but the pawn is in the way and the bishop can’t go i straight lines. But maybe I’ve missed something fundamental here about the notation we use.
This is the way I see the board.May 18, 2016 at 8:41 am #11942May 18, 2016 at 8:43 am #11946May 18, 2016 at 1:07 pm #11969May 18, 2016 at 1:07 pm #11970Only available when logged in
Or maybe I don’t… just my browser not updating.. sorry 😉May 18, 2016 at 2:48 pm #11978May 18, 2016 at 3:45 pm #11983Only available when logged in
