No. I would start carving my chess pieces if they disappeared one day.
I wouldn't die or anything , but the world is always in flux , nothing stays the same, change is always happening, I would find something else . . maybe pickup sticks.
Even pictures play chess
the last 5 years I have studied chess, read a book /played a game or something like that every week. - there would be a void I guess if I gave it up completely. I would probably play ps3 instead.
Even dead we will play chess
I could live, but that would make my brain a vegetable.
It's big a mystery to me how I can actually live with chess.
Vegetables are good ,vegetables are healthy ...it is when it turns into a fruit or a nut that you should worry
But vegetables can't think. Well, neither can fruits or nuts. But I can't prove that. Who knows? Maybe if my brain turned to a vegetable I would play better chess.
That is a neat chess piece in post #3. I would like to see the entire set.
Read ' the secret life of plants' you will be amazed what goes on in a cabbage.
The way I have been playing chess lately there no doubt is more going on in a cabbage than in my mind.
There have been years in my life when i didn't play any chess although this was before the internet was around. I am sure if i had to i could fill the void with something else. More reading, more movies, more time with my girlfriend, more video games. Life is possible without chess but it would be am adjustment.
