    Here's a quick recap of some recent board game reviews of note, from some of our favorite board game reviewers: Chaostle -- "a fantasy-themed, roll-and-move, 3D board game, maneuver around the board and attack the castle" Archipelago -- "an obtuse, conflicted, and wildly engaging Euro game full of chaos and caustic judgment" Thunder Alley -- "a fun, tactical card game that simulates NASCAR Racing" Abyss -- "a game in which players try to take control of strategic locations in an underwater city" The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game -- "a game full of contradictions, that brings a unique…

  • Queen and Bishop versus Two Rooks

    admin
    15 Nov 2014 | 12:52 pm
    A couple days ago I read this in Wikipedia’s entry called Chess endgame: Queen and bishop versus two rooks. This was thought to be a draw [before computer tablebases -- DM] but the queen and bishop usually win. It takes up to 84 moves. This got me curious. Like most players, I only know the basic pawnless endgames: K+Q vs. K, K+R vs. K, K+2B vs. K, etc. My impression was that every other pawnless endgame is ridiculously rare and ridiculously difficult. But I started wondering: could I use the Nalimov tablebases to learn something about the Q+B vs. 2R endgame? Are there some rules for…
  • Wrong Moves and Wrong Conceptions

    admin
    12 Nov 2014 | 2:44 pm
    At Mike Splane’s last chess party, the question came up: “Is one bad move enough to lose a game?” Of course the answer is yes, if the move is really, really bad, like hanging a rook or a queen. But in games between more or less experienced players, say above a 1500 rating, outright blunders like that are relatively rare. In the great majority of games it takes more than one mistake to lose. I think that it’s only at the high master level, 2500 or beyond, where one mistake might again become enough to lose. On the other hand, a wrong conception can easily be fatal, and…
  • Carlsen-Anand: A Mathematical Analysis

    admin
    11 Nov 2014 | 1:34 pm
    Today a seismic shift happened in the world championship match between Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand. Vishy finally won a game! Last year, you might remember, Carlsen defeated Anand without even losing a single game. Even though Anand went into the match as the world champion, he didn’t even look as if he was in Carlsen’s league. Many people, including me, were not too excited about this rematch because it seemed unlikely that a year could have made very much difference. And it seemed as if our expectations were confirmed when Carlsen demolished Anand in the second game of…

But the San Francisco (chess) Mechanics have Vignesh Panchanathan, the #4 fourteen-year-old in the country. There’s a very good argument that he has been their most valuable player this year in the U.S. Chess League. Although Vignesh has played only 4 games out of 11 (a ten-game regular season plus the first week of the playoffs), he has won all four of them. His most recent win was an awe-inspiring crush of Kapil…

    9 Nov 2014 | 8:44 pm
    Boom! Just like that, Magnus Carlsen goes one up against Anand in their ongoing combat for the World Chess Championships. And it is only game two. Last year, it took until game five before we saw a decisive result. Honestly, why do we even bother?Early this morning on Twitter I was amused to see a number of experts - GMs, journos and even an ex-World Champion herself - offer suggestions to the Anand camp. That perhaps Vishy should re-strategise and get a shrink. GM Jonathan Tisdall suggests that the Indian should play like, well, Vishy; that is, the younger, fearless Vishy. Play the Sicilian,…

    Such is the world today that the first thing I log on to is my social media feed. And one of the first tidbits I read this morning was a status update from a friend with the very sad news that Evelyn Koshnitsky has passed away, aged 99. Actually, it looks like the first news of this is via Kevin Bonham over on ChessChat.I did not know Mrs Koshnitsky deeply, but I certainly knew of her reputation and the immense good she did for Australian chess over the decades.Cathy Chua has a brief mention specifically of Evelyn Koshnitsky in an old post:Evelyn Koshnitsky has made her life’s work the…
  • Illingworth GM Hunting in Hungary

    12 Sep 2014 | 12:52 am
    UPDATE (16 Sep): Max scored 3.5 from the last 4 rounds of his event. Thus, he not only won that tournament but also gained himself a GM norm!(Original text below)International master Max Illingworth, who starred for Australia at the Tromsø Olympiad last month, is extending his European stint in the hunt for another GM norm. And obviously in the process, hopefully, also raise his rating ever closer to that magic 2500.Max is currently in the First Saturday GM event in Hungary. After 5 rounds there, the Sydneysider is undefeated on 3.5 points. With 4 rounds to go, he'll be desperately needing…

With almost no luck. Tips & Tricks: Important safety tip: I was a long-time playtester on this game... it's not my baby but it certainly feels like it.

Tips & Tricks: Hordes of cheaper figures can work just as well as a few big figures - and sometimes even better. As well, this is the rare combat game that works well with 2, 3 or 4 players.

It's fast (15 minutes or so) and has that potato-chip ("can't play just one time") quality. Tips & Tricks: Tom Lehman (the designer) suggests that The City is "a 5 minute bit of strategy planning followed by a horse race to the end of the game." It's a lot easier to play if you use poker chips to…

    Here's another piece of Game Central Station history - for those not in the know, GCS was my long-time pre-blog gaming website. Since Daytona 500 is about to show up in my top 100 (spoiler alert!), I decided to put this up on the blog. Starting with Niki Lauda's Formel 1, continuing with Top Race, and preceded here in America by Daytona 500, Detroit/Cleveland Grand Prix is simply the latest in a series of card-based race games. D/C Grand Prix is that rarest of gems, an excellent 3 player game, and a lot of fun as well. The tips offered here help 'goose' the game a bit. The Auction Problem…

This is what I brought with me before sitting down to play Thunder Alley - my expectations were not super high.In Thunder Alley, players are put in command of a team of stock cars, and will score points according to the place each of their team's cars are in when the race ends (the round after at least 1 car crosses the finish line).
