    The brothers of Destee.com are hosting a chess tournament as the first of many projects coming out of ideas surfaced HERE.

    The first tournament will be an individual format and all Destee members, brothers and sisters, are welcomed and encouraged to join us.

    We plan to eventually host team formats to collectively learn strategies from each other and build comradery, but for now, this is just regular ole mono a mona test your skills out and have some fun.

    The winner of this first tourney will receive a gift certificate redeemable at a black bookstore.

    We'll play the matches with the online chess engine at yahoo.

    Post a note here if you might be interesting in playing and we'll keep this sign-up thread open until 04/01/2007.

    Not really. Wasn't sure whether they was teaching people who don't know how to play, or just brushing up skills for those who already know.

    If they have the patience and time for a beginner, Heck Yeah, I'm in!

    YESSSSS Sister ... i'm sure ... even if the more advanced players don't have time for us ... we can have time for each other!

    Once we get all up and running Sister Purple ... i challenge you to a chess match! :wink:

    Do you know the pieces by sight / name, and how they move?


    The Pawn
    The Rook
    The Bishop
    The Knight
    The Queen
    The King


    If not, check these tutorial pages out: Chess Tutorial ... How To Play Chess Overview ... Chess Tutorials and Chess Lessons

    I believe the first step is learning the pieces, and how they move ... though i could be wrong, as something else could be the first step. But i know this step should be familiar to you, before sitting down at your first chess match ... so get up on that part, if you don't know it already!

    This is going to be fun!

    Love You Sister!

    :heart:
