I just don't think that way...

Wow, chess is hard!!

Yeah, okay I know that probably goes without saying, but dang I am just not cagey enough to play. My kidlet recently expressed an interest in learning the game, so I did what and good ~crazy~ mom would do and I told her we would learn together.

What was I thinking???

Moves and counter-moves. Strategic placing of your bishops while your knight move around the board gobbling up the opponents pieces until whats left is a massacre.

Uncle, waving the white flag, make love not war?? Hellllllp me....

The vultures are circling my poor King...eek


And it's over. The computer on the other end of my free "easy-who are they kidding" chess wins again! What was it, less than 10 moves this time, ~sigh~

Back to the drawing board! I will learn this game....somehow.

~start new game~ I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. Serena, I feel for ya... I ventured into the world of Chess briefly, long ago.
    It's a game of war and it's game of thinking many moves ahead, or the strategic intrigue moves that are made at court.
    I decided I didn't have the time or the deep interest to continue. Although, the game fascinates me.

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks Savanna. I too find it very interesting, but honestly if it weren't for the kidlet, I'm not sure I would be learning it...
