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!
  • When we lose (yeah, when):
Fabulosos and Sports Racers have collectively pledged a TOTAL of: $275.11 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! See how far down it's come so far!

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!!

Did Ze forget to move? - arc

  • Ze's moved his moves to the bottom text, if you didn't notice. With the mistake he made, we're now "two days behind" - as we didn't make a move one day, and he made a mistake and we didn't slam the board and walk out. <laughing> [7/25/06]
    • Actually two days ago he forgot to put his move in the bottom. About 10 minutes after the video was posted he put it in. Nice try though. - arc
      • Sorry, I'm not a hard charger and actually don't catch the show until later in the day. Anyway, as long as the move is up in time for us to do our thing, it's cool.[7/27/06]

Are there images of the previous moves? I'm a visual person and I can't imagine a chess game on only algebraic notation. It would be really awesome if some one could make an animated .gif that showed the board after each move! -- Tapman

  • Tapman, I might suggest using a freeware chess program to re-create the game using the move list. mayorcjSR 10:08, 24 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Or you could take a look at the detailed history.Geedubber 21:56, 27 July 2006 (PDT)

Okay, the new guys really need to read the edit guide. Geedubber 16:43, 26 July 2006 (PDT)

  • Or .. I could come back and lend my argumentitive self to the game once more (at least I kept things clean editing-wise while I complained and harped about moves) ... :-) .. ßrigaderant
    • WHOA .. now there's not only 'Multiple Votes' but 'Anti-voting?' .. jeez .. and the moves are getting worse too .. n/m .. i won't edit or contribute .. it's gotten to be a mess in there. ßrigaderant

A Bold New Strategy

For our next move I propose we hollow out one of our horsies and then, after it's dark, have all the other pieces climb up into it and hide. Tomorrow Ze will see that we have abandoned the field and left him a trophy, which he will take back to his home row (which will change all of our pawns into queens). I haven't played out this line in any detail, but I'm sure it'll catch him off guard.--Neal 09:45, 21 July 2006 (PDT)
