I'm not an old schooler per say, but I share a love of the game. Glad to see your posts.

Chess has evolved slowly for a very long time – for my money it reached its peak with Shogi. Fischer was undoubtedly a unique genius and some of his criticisms of the game do strike home, in my view. But he didn't propose something unrecognisable.

Similarly, OSRIC takes the stand that some AD&D material is not needed and has struck it out.

These things are a long way from what WotC have done to D&D.


Wasn't there some type of 4-D chess in a Star Trek novel? I think you could send pieces through time and they would pop in on a later turn. I remember this because McCoy managed to beat Spock.


You bastards! Three dimensional chess rules! Spock says so!

You know.. there's a subculture fight in any group of 3+ humans. 😉


Who would have thought it? I didn't even know there were "editions" in chess to fight over.

Ha! The thought of there being edition wars in the chess world amuses me to no end!
