    Yes, let's list 5,000 signs!!! Laughing It may sound crazy, but I think, altogether, we can do it!

    1. You castle by stacking your rooks on top of each other and putting your king on top
    2. You think there is a way out of checkmate
    3. You think pawns are more valuable than your king because they can promote

    It'll never get to 5,000.  The "1000 signs your play chess too much" is around 300 after a month or two.

    You can win every game, or draw if the game was played perfectly. If you can't do this, you don't know everything about chess.

    20. When a pawn captures your queen, you start saying that it isn't fair:
    "A small insignificant pawn like this has no right to capture her majesty!"

    Well, i played a begginer (not on chess.com)

    and he decided to move all his peices to one side of the boared.

    And then he would march his king out and call it "the kings' march of the peices' glory".
