    Zombies!!! Midevil 2: Castle Chaos by The Beast! (Boardgame Beast HQ) Zombies!!! Midevil 2: Castle Chaos Taking the players’ favorite Zombies!!! board game and turning it into a fantasy-themed scenario where you bash Skeletons instead was never going to be easy, but creator Twilight nailed it. So much so that there is now the demand for expansions — this is the first. You get no less than 52 add-ons for the Midevil game, which is based on Zombies!!! but not directly compatible with it. This provides plenty of extra gaming for adventure-starved fans of the series. Continues belowAt…

    This weekend I was reviewing the games from my last tournament, the National Open, in preparation for my next one. I had thought that my win in the fourth round was not very interesting, but actually there was more to learn from it than I expected. I was playing Black against Travis Guenther from Texas. Position after 26. Bf1. Black to move. FEN: 3r1r2/p1p1bq1k/1p3pp1/2n1P2p/b1P4P/P1B3Q1/3N1PP1/R3RBK1 b – - 0 26 In this position Black could simply play 26. … fe, winning a pawn. White’s bishop can’t capture because it is needed to defend the knight on d2. The queen…

Me too, especially with Halloween just around the corner. Problem is, I’ve done the math and it’s hideously expensive to buy everything at once.

    Dear BCC members,Please indulge me in a bit of shameless self-promotion.I recently wrote two chess books for adult beginners, a topic on which I have given free classes at the club for the past 20 years. I published the books a few weeks ago. They are available at the Harvard Book Store, both online and at the brick and mortar store at 1256 Mass. Ave. in Cambridge.'Chess For Adult Beginners' is a 170 pages long, with just under 100 exercises to solve (answers in the back). Covered is specific material I believe every chessplayer in the USCF 800-1200 rating range needs to know in order to…

  • “Grandmaster” Beau

    admin
    18 Aug 2015 | 2:05 pm
    This weekend a circle in my life closed, in a very strange way. One of my Facebook friends posted a link to an obituary of his former next-door neighbor in Atlanta, a man he lived next to for six years but never really knew. The one thing that jumped out at me was that he was a chess teacher, and allegedly he was a “grandmaster.” His name was Beau Hardeman. Something about the name was familiar, and I started burrowing through my old chess notebooks. Sure enough, I found a game that I  played against Beau Hardeman in New Orleans, back in 1994. A couple comments here before we…

    I was away for a few days at a science meeting in Seattle, but now I’m back. I had a chess-ful weekend. First, Eric Montany invited me and the Usual Suspects to a birthday party at his house. There were, like, real people at this party, not just chess players, and so Eric was too busy being a good host to play chess with us. Still, it was a fun evening in a beautiful spot. Even better, on Sunday Mike Splane organized one of his regular chess parties, except it wasn’t at his house. Because of the hot weather, Gary Kelly offered to host us at his air-conditioned house. This was…

    As some of you may have noticed, when I write about games against kids in this blog I often quote their age-group ranking, as in “Yesterday I beat John Doe, the #48 14-year-old in the country.” Mike Splane noticed this and said, “Why don’t you tell them that I’m the #3 61-year-old?” Busted! I have to confess that I have been guilty of age-ism. When I play a kid, I like to go to the USCF Top-100 lists and see where they rank. It never occurs to me to do the same thing when I pay an old fart like myself. However, the USCF is also guilty of age-ism, because…
  • The Cup and the Fly

    A fly is buzzing around your table and generally making a nuisance of himself. What is the best tool for getting him to leave you alone? (A) A flyswatter (B) A machine gun (C) A cup The answer is (C). A flyswatter won’t work, unless he is unusually slow or you are unusually quick, because flies have evolved over millions of years to detect fast-moving objects. “Threat! Avoid!” A machine gun would be fast enough, but it unfortunately creates collateral damage and is hard to aim with fly-level precision. The cup is your best bet. You wait for the fly to land, and then you turn…
