Besides eating your opponent's pawns, do you have a favorite snack food to eat during chess?
I favor BBQ pork with hot mustard...chips with Ranch...marinated artichoke hearts...smoked oysters.
Now I'm hungry.
Sorry this isn't a serious topic but my serious button is malfunctioing.
I like to eat whatever chips- especially 'All Dressed' or 'Sour Cream and Onion' 'Ruffles' chips.
I know this kid who drinks Pepsi ALL the time. It's kinda gross. It's probably his snack food of choice as well.
;) Just be sure not to choke on those pawns, now that would be tragic ;)
OH YEAH-- Can't forget tea... the stuff keeps me awake and improves my playing a lot... also I love the taste of tea with milk and sugar :D
When I'm playing chess I usually stick to healthy stuff like carrot sticks but otherwise pizza and chess is great.
Wouldn't it be enjoyable to play with these and actually eat them with each capture?
Pot noodle, the food of champions!
Sometimes I eat cheese, but I'm a little dyslexic.
I love that image!
Reminds me of the pancake vs. waffle controvery. With waffles, you'd have to decide which square (dimple) to eat first.
chicken! nothing beats chicken.. besides maybe a quhweeeeen
to the grobe : nice pic, looks delish, I wanna tastle those pieces!!
For chess players, waffles would seem to be a good snack. Pancakes would seem more appropriate to checkers players. They are obviously less evolved...pancakes, I mean.
Poker players might like Pop-tarts. They have an element of uncertainty and surprise.
I usually don't snack while I play chess (I do often drink soda while playing though), but I would probably just have chips, or ideally, pizza, if it wasn't a serious game. Pizza and chess go well.
Rum-filled chocolates with an almond latte! (That's what I'm having right now)
I just sit by the computer with my big block of butter and eat it.., sometimes i try to put it on lets say... a pencil and eat the pencil with it.. great stuff!
some beer+ some pizza= some kind of chess
(depends on the potions)
Depends on the time controls:
Blitz - Fritos - handful per move
Rapid - water (preferably chlorinated) and chocolate
Long - pu-ehr, oolong, or some similar Chinese herbal tea plus a pastrami sandwich if hungry
Correspondence - pizza and chlorinated water
If any of the above foods cannot be obtained, substitute with copper.
