Chess960 Analogies

bemweeks

I'm looking for chess analogies to explain chess960: 'Chess is to chess960 as ... is to ...'

Any suggestions? - Mark

I'm finding it hard to think of anything. I suppose it depends to some extent whether you are making a favourable or unfavourable comparison, or simply trying to be informative.

Fischer himself once used analogy of color TV and monochrome TV in an interview.  "Why you promote monochrome TV (normal chess) when you already have color TV (chess960) ?"  or something like that.

Once a guy asked me if I fancied a game of 960. My answer: "I play chess to escape from madness, not to embrace it".

Take your pick. I left the question open for that very reason. - Mark

Chess is to Chess960 as V2 is to V3.

Simple.

Chess it to Chess 960 as raw versus cooked spaghetti.

MuhammadAreez10

Chess is to Chess960 as 1 is to 960.

Pulpofeira

For me chess would be cooked and 960 burned and messed spaghetti.

MuhammadAreez10

Messed spaghetti? You mean it isn't always messed?

Go study rook endgames!

Pulpofeira

(Sorry, that was too mean...).

MuhammadAreez10

For what? I abandoned the dream. Some dreams are just not possible.

MuhammadAreez10

That wasn't mean. You're being highly sensitive.

Pulpofeira

Sure, but rook endgames... I'd even prefer being scolded by the wife.

MuhammadAreez10

Your wife scolds you?! Pulp, and you prefer that over took endgames. Interesting...

Now don't delete that or people will have no idea what I'm talking about.

Pulpofeira

Why should I delete it? Anyway, I'm sure most of them have a very precise idea what I'm talking about.

MuhammadAreez10

What if your account is deleted? I always worry while posting if the person who's above me gets deleted what would I have to do?!

Pulpofeira

A big deal, indeed. I love you, too.

Let's quote this! Where does the 'too' come from?!
