I heard many talk of the chess game being very difficult, so I gave it a go and defeated the computer with checkmate. I did crazy things, like taking white queen with black queen, though I knew they would take my queen after. However, it kept the balance, which made it still about playing with the pieces we each have, and whoever does it better wins.

The computer is overly protective of its pieces. I beat it by spreading it too thin, putting a piece at risk on the left of the board, then right of the board. Eventually, it made the mistake of using the king to protect a rook, which allowed for checkmate in two more moves.

If you are on a PC, just know that Angry Birds requires flash player. The other games are mobile friendly. I believe that you can arrange chess matches on the one within the arcade. I know that it worked before, when I first added it to the site. I did not play the game then, but I started one as a test with myself and a test account.

Let me know how you do against T.E.G. or Xanthine! (Insert EVIL Smile)  The emoji link does not have a suitable one.

Wow!!

It's true....It CAN be beaten.

I listened carefully to Uly's advice and then I had another go.

If you concentrate all your prawns on it's horsey one's - then attack that one with the cross on it's head - those right thin one's can pick off most of his other pieces at will.

Crosshead get's easily confused at this point and can't do hardly anything to stop you 'kinging' your other draughts.

Hop over whatever he's got left and it's game over!!

Heh heh heh... I'm always down for a friendly game. I'm on chess.com if anyone plays there, and also on LiChess. I can play correspondence games too. Me and T.E.G. play regular games via e-mail. If anyone wants to play, just shoot me a message!

The difficulty factor in computer chess can usually be set. I love chess and I know I'm only an average player and I too can beat computer chess if it is set to lowest in difficulty. Try up'ing the difficulty level a few notches. 😀

Just remember, when the game is beating you CTR/ALT/DEL screams “who’s your Daddy you circuit board bitch” like nothing else can!

Anyone ever played Battle Chess? I was big into this once when I was really bored at my job as a computer operator. When, all I had to do towards the end of the shift was swap tapes for system security (before multi-loaders and eventually fresh air backups). I used to beat that clown and enjoyed watching the animated mini battles.

I still own a "Battle of Hastings" chess set when I was big into it and I made my own chess board out of a piece of chipboard and 2" square wall tiles.

I even tried playing myself at chess. That's really hard because you always know what they other player is thinking! 🤣

Because it's don-keynob I have a sneaky suspicion that he knows his prawns from his pawns 😉 The one with the cross on it's head is for target practice. The archers in my battle of hastings set always shoot their arrows at the crosses. This is a good misdirection technique for "horsey" to jump about all over the place and giggle as he goes.

@id-less

The Evil Genius used to play this from the late 80's until the program finally gave up the ghost ... or was it the computer???  Beenquite some time since then.

Battle Chess - What a cutting edge game back in the days!  The sound still sucked, but it was the death sounds were cool.

 

Battle Chess: Game of Kings rocks as well

Me too. 

I wouldn't even mind getting my butt kicked as long as I'd taken two or three of their pieces first!!

WHOA!!! I used to play this as a kid! What an awesome game. Brings back so many memories.

My favorite capture was always the bishop captures queen. He would act like he wanted to bang her, but then kills her with a poison rose instead. Sneaky bishops... Pawn captures queen was another one of my favorites.

Maybe I was already on my way to being MGTOW when I was 5. Haha
