"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." - 06-23-06

The Stakes

Ze has accepted our stakes - 06-30-06

  • 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: $245.47 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!

There are many ways you can participate in Fabuloso Chess!

Note: If you can't vote after 7pm EDT, but still want to, GO AHEAD! We will still count your "early vote." If you look at the page later and your vote isn't there, DON'T PANIC! It has been moved to another page until voting opens.

Other Suggestions:

Non-constructive heckling and unsigned comments will not be tolerated!

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?!?

A: Sure... then wash your hands and come discuss it here.


If you don't know where to put something, just scream out here, and maybe someone will move your comment to the right place! Please note that this is not the best place to put current move proposals, only use this shoutbox if you are really confused... or just want to shout! The shoutbox is emptied at midnight into the magic dumpster!

YO! The detailed history hasn't been updated in days -- how are we to know which taunts have been delivered to Ze? Or did we stop taunting when we stopped emailing the move?

The board showing the current position is incorrect.

It's fixed.

I moved the drama to the dumpster. No need to have this on the main page. If anyone disagrees, you know where it is and can change it back. V 19:25, 15 July 2006 (PDT)

Hi all, I just updated the move on this page but not the move discussion page due to my poor wiki skills. I just wanted to avoid a repeat of last week's weekend debacle. It's midnight on the east coast.... Sal Mancini

Yeah, I update the flipped board and the header in the discussion. I think we're good for now. V 21:35, 16 July 2006 (PDT)
