What would you do then?In some ways, Blood of the Werewolf reminded me of the "headlessness" philosophy of D.E. Harding.

    The title is a line from a song you wouldn’t know, by a singer you wouldn’t know. It’s a line that came to mind this afternoon, as I was driving home from my latest tournament, the People’s Tournament. There are some tournaments I often play well in, like the Reno tournaments. And then there are some tournaments that, for unfathomable reasons, I never ever do well in… and that’s the People’s Tournament. I know that nobody reading this blog wants to throw me a pity party, so I’ll keep my account short. On Friday, the first day of the tournament,…
  • Training with Shredder

    admin
    23 Jul 2014 | 9:17 pm
    Lately I’ve been playing more frequently against the computer program Shredder, with a purpose. After my last tournament I had a feeling that I was not getting enough practice in winning superior positions. In fact, playing against Shredder set at its maximum strength, I was hardly ever even getting a superior position. So I came to the conclusion that I needed to play some training games against the computer with its rating “dumbed down” a bit. In retrospect, it’s silly that I didn’t do this before. There were two main reasons. One was pride. I wanted to…

    I’m back from my three days and two nights in Sacramento. For me, the tournament was a Learning Experience. That’s another way of saying that it didn’t go as well as I had hoped. Strangely enough, though, I enjoyed it and I will definitely consider playing in this tournament next year. I really liked the idea of playing in a tournament that isn’t dominated by IM’s and GM’s but instead has good strong competition at the expert and national master level. As I said, the tournament was definitely winnable for a player like me, and this was proved by the fact…

    18 Jul 2014 | 7:05 pm
    Who didn't see this coming? The open letters are flying around as usual. Norwegians on one side and FIDE as well as the Russians on the other.They can fire off the bluster all they like, but at least now any talk of moving the event to Russia is finally put to rest. In this interview with Goran Urosevic, Kirsan confirms it: "[The Olympiad] will stay in Tromso. The General Assembly adopted Tromso and there is no further discussion."
  • Russian Threat To Norway Olympiad

    17 Jul 2014 | 6:47 am
    Just a few weeks ago the upcoming Tromso Olympiad took a brief dive because of some uncertainty over sponsorship money. Thankfully, the tournament was brought to level again when the Norwegian government finally confirmed funding of 12 million NOK. But now, only a fortnight from the start of proceedings, new turbulence has hit the event.As far as I can tell, this new set of problems is related to the organisers' decision to exclude from Tromso as many as ten teams, one of which is the Russian women's side who, of course, won the 2010 and 2012 women's events. Expectedly, that's pissed off the…

    Wow! This one's completely out of the blue. Some young Aussie chess guys just launched a digital startup called "50 Moves". Basically, it is an online chess magazine. From the very professionally designed website it looks like this is going to be  a well organised publication. It certainly looks like plenty of planning has gone into this venture before final rollout. But what's really impressive is the roster of contributors, consisting mainly of Australia's new masters and the legendary, GM Ian Rogers.The first issue will be on 1 August, just in time for the Olympiad.Now I have just had…
  • Aussie Olympiad Fund Appeal

    11 Jun 2014 | 4:46 am
    For the last few years, especially in the months leading up to an Olympiad, the Australian Chess Federation has always run a very successful Olympiad Fund Appeal. Given the overall cost of travel for our men's and women's teams, the amounts collected are quite modest. But they help.For example, about this same time two years ago, the ACF collected over $10,000 in donations. This year, however, they've garnered only a paltry $700! And we are only a little over a month out from the Olympiad in Norway.What has happened? An economic dip Down Under that we don't know about?Perhaps it is…

    This post was originally written in 2006 - when Collin was 16 months old. He's 9 now. (How time flies.) In the context of my spiritual walk today, I really really need to listen to Mark from 2006. Collin has discovered the joy of putting small objects into slightly larger holes. Yes, it's that time the developmental progress of a young boy when everything is a puzzle waiting to be solved. So, yesterday afternoon, I found myself attempting to extricate an empty Mini M&M's container from one of his toys with a shish-kebab skewer. (For the record: no, I did not succeed.) I've had a…

(Sadly, we did not see any gulos, baby or otherwise, at the Columbus Zoo - they were hiding.) Dinosaur attack! Braeden is much more blase about it than Collin.

It's the only sport I've ever "officially" coached.

    If you’ve seen the statistics about the industry before then you know that the average revenue figure (which includes some huge stores) is about $320,000.  If you split that evenly across the year, you are assuming a $26,000 in revenue a month.  If you assume that Nov is twice as good and December 3 times as a normal month, than an ‘average’ month would be $21,333.   So if you figure that you get an average sale of let’s say $50, you are assuming 426 sales a month or approximately 14 sales a day.  Now, obviously there’s a lot of fudging here (Magic players…

    When you read the title, you probably asked yourself, “why in the world would anyone do that?” And before seeing the photos that Reddit user prophet_elisha posted of her wedding, I thought the exact same thing. I just imagined a tacky event at an FLGS that resembled a 10 year old child’s birthday more than the marriage of two people.

    After my original onslaught on the board gaming world, it has been pointed out that my game playing style might not just be down to Yugioh, but my own persona. Whatever the reason, I continue totally unrepentant of my ruthless gameplay and as they say in Yugioh – ‘Play to Win or go home early.’ […] The post Board Gaming Dairy of an Unrepentant Yugioh Player…Week 4 – Age of El Grande!! appeared first on GamesQuest.
