***STAUNTON CHESS SETS***
If you place your finger on the nose of a Knight and snap it down into the board just right, the piece will rebound to a standing position. Now try doing it with two Knights at once. Finally, do it using the four fingers of one hand to rebound all the Knights into a standing position.
Now that you can rebound Knight noses try doing it with all the other pieces. Rooks can actually do flips! Kings and Queens are hardest as they tend to topple over easily.
A Queen can be stacked upsidedown on a Rook or right side up on three pawns. A King can stand on two Knights facing each other. Bishops are almost impossible to stack things on. How high can you stack your chess pieces?
3) Pawn Football:
The object is to 'kick' a pawn from one edge of the board so that it is partially over the opposite edge of the board.
4) Quick Jumps:
Pawns are arranged around a 3x3 portion of the chess board and a king is placed in the center. The object is to see how many Knight jumps you can do in a clockwise direction in 5 seconds.
Look what I found!!!
How strange that you would rank that exactly where I did.
Very nice stack! I better get practicing, heh :-)
I like stacking also, but isthatso gets angry at me when ever I do it.
How much glue was used on that stack?
I could stack all the white or black pieces on top of each other with only one piece touching the ground.
It's nice to see one of Pawnshover's old posts reactivated. It's a shame he's no longer playing here. Does anybody who remembers him know why he pulled out?
I am quitting chess.
