My buddy Dave and myself(Dave), yes two Daves, playes some Shotglass Chess tonight :D. Sorry, the pics are dark as my flash is broken on my digital camera :(

A few things...Yes that is beer in the shot glasses because each side holds 26 ounces which is 2 ounces more than a 5th(which is a shitload of alcohol). I'm the one drinking beer :D. Actually, I'm the one on the left.

I'll drink it from the can, but I will go for bottles first. Especially here in Leicester. Back home and it's pint all the way. :)

I know some people used to go on Drunken chess comps. If you win a game you've got too drink one striaght down. The winner is the last man/women standing. Guess thats explains why some people can only play after they're pissed.

Gooid gravy! That sounds more smashing the shot game for the Ravens vs. Giants super bowl. Everytime someone had to punt, you had to take a shot. We figured if we actually played that game everyone would have taken over 20 shots before HALF TIME!!!

Brings back memories of the "century game" from Univeristy. Failed the first time after 50 or so the beer was warm. Made it the second time, after the all important burp at around 60.

Also had some friends of mime that played backgammon with little shots, I never played and I don't know if they ever finished a game. They would use light and dark rum.

Unfortunately, I made a crucial error early on and lost :( The worst part is, I taught him how to play chess! Oh well, win some, lose some.

Now that's a chess set! I'd rather be the Guinnes (stronger better flavor). Maybe that's why Bobby Fisher got so good at chess :D

PIT: Anything by Chessbase is good. I got Shredder and Fritz. They also publish Junior.

Well this is what I've got

Fritz 8,7,6
Shredder 7,6
Nimzo 8,99
Hiarcs 8,7,6

Powerbooks 2002

The only one I haven't got is Junior which is tempting.

One of the problems I noticed when I was still playing league chess is that many people were using Fritz or whatever to analize postal chess and games like that. Cheating is the only word you can call it and no doubt the winner was the person with the strongest setup.

Had a nice game of drunken chess last night. Poor guy made one mistake and his position collasped. Still it was better than playing a bunch of silicon that never gets tired or looses concrentration.
