I've played casual games OTB, but never a rated one.
I haven't ever played either one. Just online.
No chess set either I gather.
Sounds odd to me but I'm old.
I have a chess set from Wal-Mart that I set up puzzles on once in a while. Why odd?
I've never met anyone in rl who was a player but never played otb. Every player had some kind of set--I had a plastic $.59 pocket peg set from very early on. Anyone can afford such a set, as a minimal piece of equipment--at least in the West.
But I've spent a good portion of my chess life in a pre-internet era.
Why do you call yourself "woodshover"? Shouldn't it be "Digital image clicker:?
But I DO have one I got from Wal-Mart. I never owned one before joining this site because I hadn't ever played before joining here. I don't consider myself a player yet. Look at my rating.
Look at my rating.
Last time I saw your rating I was insensible for an hour
Maybe give me one digit at a time so I can close my browser before any damage can be done.
I can't believe nobody on here hasn't played OTB.
so it time for you to go down to the club and play a game.
I don't own my own board, but I'm saving up for this board/piece combo... ($6500 USD)
My god! mine was just 19.95.
Since I assume people in clubs are fairly good players, I imagine I would just go in, and look like a fool.
I've never played a rated game OTB. I have played hundreds, maybe even thousands of games OTB though.
I've never even met a player, except one or two who claim they used to play.
We were all fool once and those good players were a fool too when they started to play for the first time.
I wouldn't think somebody would join a club to learn how to play.
