Chess and the football

Chess, as we have mentioned multiple times is a strategic game. This is evident but can it be compared to a Real Time Strategy(RTS) and the answer to me is yes.

I have played Star Craft Brood War, Total War, Age of Empires, Warcraft3, and many others and they are strategic in value. So then what is chess? We have talked about the movements in chess. What about the way to outwit your opponenet by being so cunning that your at least four moves ahead? 

Well, to that I say it is hard to think even two moves ahead. But I guess I will liken this to the NFL. That is a very strategic game despite what some would be led to believe. Football is about yards, strategy, determination and so much more.

I'd say that is  a rather dirty and gritty version of football. The same concept could be applied to Chess, RTSS, and Football.

By the way who is your pick for the Super Bowl.

I am going the Giants.

Ta-ta.
