The game of Chess has a ruling goddess and her name is ???
What is her name and what is the background behind it ???
If you know the answer, please write "I KNOW" in the comments.
I'll post the answer in a couple of days.
I (think I) know.
This could be a trick question. "Ruling" must mean "still alive" so perhaps it's the current Women's WCC Alexandra Kosteniuk? (i was going to say Caissa from the Greek legend which has a very interesting story behind it).
Gods are immortal. And yes, goddess of chess is still ruling, and her name is
C _ _ _ _ _!
Is it Rosie O'Donnell? TELL ME NOW!
I believe batgirl has a blog entry on this one, Opie ole pal.
Paul Truong? ;)
OK, I'm voting for kohai.
The answer is "Caissa". Hate to spoil it, there were so many good guesses.
Are you sure it wasn't Betty Boop?
I'll go with Natalia
Just cuz she's a titled player?
Well you're a titled player, and I sure don't picture you as much of a goddess.
So the answer to your question is no.
How about LisaV ? Oh, wait, we're after a goddess, not a mistress.
