21.04.2011 | 棋壇高手

前日喺某商場見到呢兩盤彩色巨型西洋棋, 當時真係有兩位朋友玩緊(或者話用個抬字恰當啲呢??), 覺得非常之盞鬼..

其實我都好羨慕識得捉棋嘅人, 尤其當棋手沉思冥想應該點樣部署下一步棋嘅時候, 我會覺得佢哋好叻好有修養.. 點解?? 因為本人除咗黑白棋同動物棋可以呃下人之外, 其他一概一竅不通!! 唉, 講出嚟都覺得慚愧, 如果我係識得捉棋嘅話, 我應該會比較深謀遠慮??
saw these two colorful giant chess sets in a shopping mall the other day, and there were two guys really playing the game (or maybe saying them carrying the chess is more appropriate??), find that rather impressive..

i actually admire those who know how to play chess, especially when they are thinking deep on how to take the next step, i really think they are very smart and cultivated.. why?? because other than othello and the childish animal kingdom chess, i do not know how to play any other chess at all!! haiz, i sometimes feel so ashamed in this area, if i can play chess then i guess i might be more of a visionary and tactical person??

  1. I'm hopeless. My housemate taught me once and he beat me ALL the time...but one day, I beat him. I never played again after that - retired the champion. He was so pissed off... LOL!!!

  6. I played chess during my school days.... Dunno why I chose it back then, but I hate it because I need to use my brain for the moves. I prefer something which doesn't require me to think much. I'm a single cell person, kekeke!

  7. hey, don't say the stupid animal kingdom chess la! it's great for teaching kids before the adult version. i say that because that was what i started with before playing the regular chess.

    ReplyDelete
  40. but i don't think you should feel ashamed of yourself for not being good in chess, i am sure there are other things that you are very good, or even expert, in.. right?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. but at least you know how to play othello.. it is not easy too as you also need tactical thinking to be able to beat your opponent.. so who say you can't play chess?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. @ suituapui:
    well then that's still fine.. unless you said you taught him and then he beat you all the time then that's very bad, hahaha!! you so bad, never give chance for him to revenge.. :D

    @ lina:
    hahaha, then i think we came from the same kampung, i also am hopeless at chess lah, even if i know how to play, i'm never good at it..

    ReplyDelete
  43. @ mNhl:
    errr, depend on what type of chess lah.. of course chinese chess is very complicated and you need to know the tactic.. so i can never play it well though i know some theories.. you should ask your brother to train you.. :p

    @ Hayley:
    haha, i am not good at playing chess also.. interest i won't say i don't have, perhaps when i know them well, i could be interested..

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ Sheoh Yan:

    @ Yvonne:
    haha, you hate playing chess but then seems like you have been playing that well right?? yeah, i sometimes don't like thinking too much, very straight forward and that's why i always lose in the games.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. @ doc:
    haha, ok ok, i've changed my post to say "childish" instead of "stupid", should sound more appropriate right?? but i guess the first chess we all used to play is the snake and ladder, haha~~ the animal kingdom chess the second i supposed..

    @ Gratitude:

    @ Merryn:

  54. @ Ashley:
    哈哈, 動物棋其實很好玩囉, 記得這是第一種玩的棋.. 黑白棋其實不容易, 要想你應該如何走下一部, 又要猜對方如何迎戰.. 哈哈, 不會可以去學下棋喇, 有心情有mood的事後可以看一下囉..

    @ Pete:
    yeah, those are huge, about half the height of an adult..

  63. I remember seeing a movie once based on a Sidney Sheldon novel, there's this heroine who doesn't really know how to play chess but she beat 2 world champions! You saw the movie or read the book? It's a genius tactic from Sidney Sheldon! Never thought of that! : )
