Friday Night

So there I was at the stroke of midnight, contemplating the four-knights opening by the dim glow of a flashlight, ears popping under the extra five pounds per square inch of pressure.

On Friday night, Dan (who you may remember as the Robot9000 bot author), Elizabeth and I invented midnight underwater speed chess.

A nice feature is the naturally-enforced clock.  You have as much time per move as you have air in your lungs. Protip: don’t use a glass set.

Now we just need to combine it with chess boxing.

  1. This sounds great! If only I could get over my phobia of being underwater. ;)

    It’s so cool to see someone come up with a new, novel idea, and then see what directions others take it in (the underwater chess boxing ideas, people’s chess boards, etc.) Also, I’m sure it would be hard to play in a river, or one of those ‘endless pools’ that seem to be advertised in lots of magazines. Or the ocean, for that matter, lol. Maybe the pieces shoud be similar to the “weebles” toys, which are egg-shaped and can’t be knocked over. Something would have to be done to keep them from scooting around, however, but not always falling over might help a bit.

    Anyway, thanks for the interesting idea and the cool comments. =)

  8. Friday Night Lights is an American drama television series based around a high school football team situated in Texas. It was developed by Peter Berg, and executive produced by Brian Grazer, David Nevins, Sarah Aubrey, and Jason Katims, based on the book and film of the same name. The series takes place in the fictional town of Dillon: a small, close-knit community in rural Texas. Particular focus is given to team coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and his family, Tami and Julie. The show uses this small town backdrop to address many issues facing contemporary American culture, including family values, child development, life lessons, school funding, racism, drugs, abortion and lack of economic opportunities
