The Challenge

Ze playing chess on his 06-23-06 show
Ze playing chess on his 06-23-06 show

"Holy crap! The League of Awesomeness says that any chess game started during a show has to be played all the way through! You've inadvertently challenged me to Fabuloso Chess. You have to make your first move by Sunday midnight. The LOA says that the stakes of this game are yet to be determined. You might want to contribute your ideas. I'm gonna kick your ass."

  • Discuss and vote on the current move (serious discussion only please) Voting OPEN until (slightly prior to) SUNDAY MIDNIGHT EDT
Non-constructive heckling and unsigned comments will not be tolerated!

The Stakes

If we win (and have you seen the chess game discussion? We are so going to whip his ass):
The Show: Unplugged - YES! "At least 10 minutes of Ze and a guitar performing songs." By popular vote, thanks to Ann for the winning suggestion!
If we lose (psh, yeah if):
Fabulosos and Sports Racers have collectively pledged a TOTAL of: $242.00 to purchase a book from his Amazon Wish List!
We can afford The Psychology of Humor: A Reference Guide and Annotated Bibliography ($131.95): sounds stimulating! maybe he'll let us borrow it when he's done!
Note! Please do not hesitate to continue to pledge! If possible, we can bring down the amount of money everyone needs to contribute, or even purchase a few more books from his wish list!


Q: How do we know we are playing with Ze?

A: We don't, it could be his kitty or Deep Fritz, and there was nothing in the rules that forbid him asking a grandmaster for advice either.

Q: Won't Ze be able to read all our strategies?

A: Currently there is nothing in this wiki that a freeware chess engine won't detect in 10 seconds. Unless you want to post something that analyses 18+ plies (at least 9 moves) ahead, there is no use for Ze reading it, and even then that analysis is half a move too old to be useful for him. It is important to understand that you don't win these kinds of games by trapping or surprising the opponent. You win by doing a deeper analysis at each move so that you are more likely to become aware of favorable deviations from previously analysed lines before your opponent.

Q: Who's playing white?

A: That would be Ze.Poop!

Q: What do we do if the voting is deadlocked??? Go Fuck Ourselves?!?

Holy hell the taunts really are just shit pulled out of some random ass. Honestly this verbal diarrhea is embarrassing and a disgrace to the game. Use something from the "good taunt" section, not some half digested regurgitation of Ze's insult. -Graymon

Is there a veto procedure to challenge a move that got voted in but is still a grave error? Kingpatzer 08:02, 7 July 2006 (PDT)

I believe arc already answered that question for you .. "Not playing collaborative chess, I think." ... put succinctly: No.I see the chickens laid in move 3 are about to come home to roost.

Prediction: ze in 16

Major .. if you plan on submitting the vote at midnight .. you're going to have to be the tiebreaking vote .. if it comes to that. It's 10-10 right now .. ßrigaderant

Could someone explain the last moves, up to that point you were doing reasonably fine, then 8. .. b6 and Ze's 9. a3  ??? What is going on? Doesn't material mean anything in the league of awesomeness??? --gelbitalk 08:40, 10 July 2006 (PDT)
