Ever tried Scot's whisky?
Chess is wonderful "escapism" Ziggyblitz but whisky is only mechanism that transports to the places you speak of.
Um, no. Ever played golf on 'shrooms?
Pass the Glenfiddich... I need a drink to help me think of all of the reasons I play chess...
For love of the game! I learned the game when I was a little kid. It always came back around even tho, I stopped playing for a while. Chess has been one of my longest, least inexpensive hobbies.
For lack of a girlfriend.
I play to crush my enemies, to see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
Seriously, I love puzzles and every chess position is a puzzle to be solved.
It's something I enjoy that will actually have an impact on my future.
I enjoy it because it keeps me in a logical/analytical state of mind, which makes me feel comfortable.
