Is Chess the best board game of all time in your opinion?

  • #21

    .. Japanese, chess, {or 'Shogi'}, is a 'blast' to play ; Though, I studied it, with a 'universal' notational 'set'; That did Not, thankfully, involve memorizing, 'Japanese' script, {including, facing you, 'upside down', on your opponent's pieces}.

     

    .. Their 'parachute', {captured piece}, 'drop' rule, {as an alternative, to making a 'move' with your own pieces}.. Both, insures, its' complexity.. and, Not being a 'cinch' for 'a.i.' software, to solve.

    Robo Rally!

     

    Chess is a nice mental excersise, like sudoku, or calculus problems, but it is actually quite horrible as a game that you want to play with friends and family. After all at a party with more than 2 people 1 person is left out to watch from the side.

    .. That, would be : 'Dai shogi' ..{see below} ..

     

     

    Dai Shogi is only 15x15. You're probably thinking of Tai Shogi, but even that is only 25x25. That picture is Taikyoku Shogi.

     

    Shogi's pretty fun and kind of overwhelming when you're not accustomed to drops. Also, the memorizing of characters isn't really a problem. Think of it this way: in Chess, you had to memorize the shapes of the pieces to tell what moves went to which pieces, right? Shogi's no different, conceptually.

    I'm addicted to card games. Anyway, I personally prefer checkers.

    Yes. Best board game. Best video game. Best sports game. Never gets stale.

    I think chess is the best.  I tried Go, but I can't really get the hang of it.  I couldn't even comprehend the most basic puzzles for beginners. It unique logic was simply inaccessible to me, and when I actually played a game the moves appeared more random and arbitrary than reasoned and sensible.  Chess to me is the very best, and its the only game I play.

    It's the best board game, for now - just wait until I finish developing my Roman version of it, however...

    It's definitely not the reich game for me.

    Personally I found it a right gas when I played...

    I haven't seen that game since long ago in summer camp. 

  • #31

    Nah. Ludo.

    No. But it’s a great game. Nothing can beat playing a game of tennis, pong pong, basketball, rock climbing, hiking or generally anything you do that involves elevating your heart rate and being outdoors. Take your pick.

    Apparently, Go is really good game, but I can't play it

  • #34

    i actually find risk a but more fun than chess but risk has three problems

    1. you can't be a risk grandmaster.

    2. i'm terrible at it.

    3. and luck is a very important factor. (probably why i'm bad at it. my luck is terrible)

    topic says board game.  I am not sure, but I do NOT think tennis is a board game.  (love tennis btw)

    At least it may stand the test of time

    Yes, Chess is the greatest game I have ever known. The answer to this question also depends on the person's interest in the game.
