I am bored, and I am an avid chess player. So I propose a chess game.

I will be playing the whites (since I am the OP, only makes sense, lol), and anyone of you can come on in and propose a move from the blacks. I will be limiting myself to playing against about five of you at once, maybe more, maybe less, depends on the time I have here.

I here have a chessboard:

en.lichess.org...

This will help visualizing our moves.

So. I will be making my first move, then anyone of you can submit a move reply, then I will individually make a counter-move for the different replies I had, and so on. Basically a one-on-one game of chess but it'll be me against multiple ATSers. When you write your move, the post must include the square at which your piece started and the square at which your piece ended up, example, d2 - d4. I will ignore anyone who replies with a white move, with unrecognized move notations, or with an illegal move.

All right. So my first move is the ever-classical opening e2 - e4. Here a pawn is on e2, so basically I am saying that I have just moved my king pawn some 2 squares toward you. To visualize my move, try the chessboard I have provided:

lichess.org...

All right, your turn! Let us see who are the true masters of this century-old game of logic around here.

Chess is a racist game that promotes monarchical religious violence and the equestrian subjugation of the 99%.

Sorry, being sillier than normal here, my apologies.

Chess rocks though, I mostly play go nowadays. I am about an 8 kyu now, go is also very racist.

Would you prefer that instead of calling the black King, we call it the "Afro-american non-monarchical leader", and instead of calling it the white bishop, we call it the "Caucasian male religious nut"?

Or perhaps we could focus on actual playing?

Ageist.
You have barred descriptive notation, otherwise I would have responded with
1...P-K4

I am unfamiliar with this type of notation. Furthermore, it is now officially archaic:


FIDE stopped recognizing descriptive notation in 1981 (Golombek 1977:216).

Sorry mate...

Quite an original move - deploying your knight before your pawns

Well, it is the most classical approach to an opening. Though I am currently using a bishop opening, I myself usually use a rather... non-classical approach.
