Thanks for the suggestion, Conquer Club is a great site. I have just signed up.
yes it's very laid back. there doesn't seem to be as much sarcasm. people definetly take chess more seriously. i'm playing 3 games right now and it's pretty cool waiting for someone on the other side of the side of the world to wake up and make their move. now i play chess whilewaiting for someone to make their move and somehow it's better now
are you using the name ralphwoodcock on conquer club. if not, tell me what ur using and we'll try and hook up in a game. i'm going by the moniker of cavemanjim cause i'm so good lookin'.
No thats my facebook login. I used ralphw.
Settlers of Catan is a great strategy game also.
i like civ 4 and 5 [for the computer], settlers of catan [i have all the expansions] and houngry hungry hippoes.
I'd say sorry, the pieces look like pawns XD
I play Go, Lu Zhan Qi (something like Stratego), Chinese Chess, as well as chess.
I forgot Othello...duh... that game is really cool...
Othello slipped my mind too. I used to play a lot when I was in my teens and only recently had a game or two online.
Any else like Nine Men's Morris? It was a favourite of mine when I was young.
Stratego! This is a game in which NO ONE can beat me, not even computers! It reminds me of chess 960 but all the pieces are covered so you do not know the ranks of your opponents pieces.
I could beat you. As proof, I give youhttp://www.edcollins.com/stratego/index.html
Risk. Love the iPad Dominion version with online play.
Nimzo, you only posted that because you're on the cover (pre-beard).
Isn't Othello a brand name for the game called Reversi ?
stratego-capture the flag
Both Shogi (Japanese chess) and Xiangqi (Chinese chess) are excellent alternatives to standard western chess. Other non-chess related games I like include Backgammon, Risk, Scrabble, Chinese Checkers, Rummikub, and Go.
FALSE - but I appreciate the sentiment!
I really do like Junta, but I also like Othello (= Reversi) Stratego & Risk
People keep suggesting Risk. I can't keep quiet. A group of old friends used to keep in touch with a biweekly game of Risk, rotating the hosting among our houses, there were usually five of us. We kept it up for over a year, but by the time a few months had gone by, all of us understood the strategy required to win and it became more a game of chance, who could roll the best numbers and most doubles. That's really why the game finally broke up - even with beer and the comeraderie, it became boring.
All of those fellows were bright guys, not a poker sucker among them, but only two of us were chessplayers or avid gamers of any sort (late '70s). Risk is just not that complicated. It is more or less Monopoly without the accounting. Strategy in backgammon or Parcheesi is deeper and more nuanced, of games using dice.
