A new group has been created for women, some big team matches are also planned. The group is called womanly chess.
Join the group here! http://www.chess.com/groups/home/womanly-chess
Are the beards an absolute requirement?
I'm just running it, not playing in it.
Is your beard by any chance blue?
No not blue
Do women play other chess? A knight extra perhaps?
You don't get knights if you're a woman, you get ponies.
not blue ? bummer!
ok, how about trimming it and sticking the hairs to your chest in the shape of a spider ?
Yes, that sounds good. A spider chest haha! And no red lady, equal starting positions - afterall, women are better than men at chess.
So what are your plans for this "team" exactly? We won't start seeing new members "disappearing" after a few weeks now right?
i reckon our "knight" sounds good at day and night, so i think all's cool John!
This is a real co-incidence cos I was thinking of setting up a Manly Chess Group for men only.
i am in ruby
Me too :-)
you are a woman, you can't join. sorry
I've set up a group for people who live in my village, it's going amazingly.
Are you by any chance trying to create a 'chess harem'?
That would be reprehensible and I'm furious at myself for not thinking of it first.
This is what my chess harem would look like - here the ladies are doing some openings preparation before a big tournament:
You may mock me now, but when internet chess takes off in Sidford in 2020 I will be the one having the last laugh.
