the 65th Square

  • International 
  • Formed: Jul 5, 2013
  • Why play chess? is a question I have been asking myself (especially when I am getting shellacked!). Although it's often hard to forget about the win/lose aspect and simply play to learn and resolve puzzling situations, this is where the greatest joy comes for me. As one friend says, "chess is art." Certainly it allows for creativity! The 65th square is designed to be a club, a forum, a tournament site, and somewhere to share whatever it is you have to share (presumably related to chess in some way). It could be not unlike the 19th hole on a golf course, where members share their victories and analyze their defeats with comrades. Thanks for the input and support from hope2joy and SavyNL to get this started.

  • Hi. I am Fred. Nice to meet you guys. Hope2joy asked me to join. I enjoy team matches, as long as the time control is 5 days per move or longer due to my work schedule.

  • no. when you set up a challenge, you can vary the time limit and vacation time. If you want to try one, go to "Create Event" or "New Match"
