    -Chess = Squares + ... *whispers to another guy* whats that

    -Emm... Is chess...em.. chest? Or... CHEESE!

    -So, like, are you really great at chess

    -Have you been to, like, tons and tons of tournaments

    -Have you ever played timed chess

    -Do you know the name of like, all the best chess players in the history of chess

    -Are you paranoid about having your chess pieces perfectly centered in each square

    -What if I copied the exact same moves you made for the entire game, what would happen

    -Can I promote my pawn to a pawn, or can I promote it to a king to have two kings

    -Is it at all possible to promote all my pawns to queens

    -How does my castle move

    -Is that a bishop or a knight... oh it's a rook okay 

    -(5 seconds later) what's this piece 

    -Why can this bishop only move on white squares and that one only moves on black squares

    -Can the horse move there, can it move there, there, there

    -Can you teach me how to get really good at chess

    -Can you teach me how to checkmate someone in 5 moves

    -Want me to teach you Fool's Mate

    -Why can't the pawn take there

    -I thought this piece was the king

    -Why did you move the king and rook at the same time, you didn't tell me you could do that, that's not fair move it back

    -Everyone's better at chess than me

    -Mind if I watch your game, I don't want to play, I just want to watch, I'm just watching

    -Haha it looks like checkers

    -I bet you'd be a master at checkers

    "Chess is/looks too complicated for me, so I didn't try to learn it" 

     

    If I had a penny every time I heard a non-chess player say that to me, I'd be on an aeroplane to a different country by now.

    "Did you know that if you are white you can move two pawns at the same time as your first move of the game?"

    As sad as this may be, I actually had this thrown at my face a couple of months ago at my chess club.

    Not directly about chess, but my wife's friend, looking at my mostly chess "library" advised her that decorators recommend arranging your books by color so the bookshelves look their best.

    Clearly, reviving a duplicate 6-month-old thread is a GREAT idea.
