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." - 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: $268.00 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!


The Game :: Ze vs. Fabulosos ::

PARTICIPATE!

There are many ways you can participate in Fabuloso Chess:

FAQ

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!!

Wow .. you fools didn't account for Qa4 .. shame shame.

  • Ok. If you're so concerned about the game, you can chime in before we finish voting. And remember to sign your comments. PTWhipplebang 06:18, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
  • must be Brigade :) Sorry but we did account for Qa4. Read the discussion. Qa4 is not a threat. If you are so smart you can find out why just by looking at what our little bishop and knights can do. Kingpatzer 06:39, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
    • Sorry to disappoint ya Patz but I only lurk on the main page and the chess arena and usually to shake my head. I also sign my comments, which I haven't made in several days. ßrigaderant 11:05, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
      • Hmmm, must be someone else on a Charter DSL line in Fort Worth Texas with a chip on his shoulder. Jeff 10:03, 20 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Um, do we get to make the taunt that Ze forgot to enter a move and forfeits a turn if he does it again?
  • He put his move under the video. I assume he means that he's taking our pawn? PTWhipplebang 11:30, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Pawn to E5 was the fabuloso's last move, which is why I was cornfused. If that's what he meant, it should have read PxE5, no?
  • He hasn't really been using algebraic notation. Remember to sign your comments. PTWhipplebang 11:34, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Sorry about the no signature thing - I was just wandering in trying to figure out what the move was. I don't post in the wiki otherwise.
  • Ze asked if we were using a computer. I think that might have been in response to some fritz calculations that were posted on the wiki after voting last night. They were promptly moved to the magic dumpster. I posted a comment in the show telling him as much Geedubber 11:55, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
    • Oh, ok. I was wondering what that was about. BTW, my early vote got removed last night. Oh well, it was unanimous. V 13:48, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
  • We seem to be ahead. At least it looks that way to me, although I am the worst player here. But we're not too far ahead. So this is a good time to offer to turn the board and let Ze play black while we play white. Let's add some chaos!--Neal 17:28, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
    • Its also a good time to crush Ze like a bug for his insolence. Wophugus
      • Yes, but contending that we can win the game with either black or white at this point is even more insolent. And it'd be funny. - arc
  • Maybe he thought e5 was bad. The using a computer thing might have been sarcastic? Heck, I don't know. I'm so confused. V 23:55, 19 July 2006 (PDT)
  • I think we should add a request that nobody use chess programs to suggest moves on the discussion page for the next move. After all, it's pretty clear Ze isn't using one. JudiciousH 00:59, 20 July 2006 (PDT)
