Chess is a SPORTS for strong men. Make the pawn 30 kg heavy and the heaviest, king and queen at 80 kg.

AniAnot proposal to make chess a Sports. The huge chess clock is located 50 meters away from the chess board. Players must dash to the clock every move. Game is won by checkmate, time out or RESIGNATION.

*Another. Only Stalemate and 50 moves rule Draw. Agreement and Threefold repetition is not allowed.

Chess is a game, a board game.

lol if you made the pawns 30kg and all, then the best chess players wouldn't be able to play due to not being physically active or strong enough. This is because at this point in time chess is not a sport and nerds and weak people play, yes they are smart but thats all its not a sport.

I disagree with the claim that chess is a sport. I remember back in Ukraine people would keep referring to it as "sport" and usually it was just the people who spent too much time playing chess in their leisure time. They wanted to give weight and purpose to their hobby. I think especially with video games emergence over last decades it only shows that either chess is not a sport or the video games must be considered sport. I do not consider something like Call of Duty, Starcraft, or Civ games to be examples of sport. These games either require honed reaction time, skill with hand, knowing the maps, and strategic thinking. One most similar to chess are probably many turn based games like Civilization etc.

Video games like chess do not really require physical fitness. Yes. I know professional chess players exercise to improve their thinking and general stamina. But it is not required at all in general. Physical fitness and development of some physical abilities is what separates sports from non sports. And not every physical activity is a sport of course.

Chess doesn't have to be a sport for people to enjoy it. It makes no difference at all.

 LOL. "Video games like chess..." Chess is not and will never be a video game. How about serious chess tournaments? Do chess players play with their computers and do moves there, not in the real chess board. Internet chess and chess against computers are not video games. And playing video games is to different. Sad thing is, you will stand up on your opinion that chess is a mere video game where you just need to think strategically. Chess is still different. It requires skill, creativity, and thinking, while video games don't require skill. And chess cannot be solved, unlike checkers, which is weakly solved. And you just play internet (virtual) chess, don't you? Try playing in serious tournaments and enjoy (except you won't) the pressure everywhere.
