Yes it is just a game.  But you have to remember that (according to the common theory) chess (or a game like it) was invented to settle disputes between rival kings without bloodshed and the game we now know has been played since a time when actual war was conducted according to strict rules with the pieces representing royal court members

Chess is War. It was created to depict ancient war principles. But without the blood shed.

Here is the piece I wrote about it:  CLICK ON IT!

One of the very few things that riles me up is when people say "Chess is WAR!!11one!" It's pushing figurines around on a board. But people love the idea of battle, at least the people who have never seen real battle. War gets dressed up as this heroic and noble struggle that unites nations; it's such a shame that we cannot feel that way about more productive endeavors.

Chess is like a war psychologically I agree, but not to the point that one will hate and kill his opponent like in real war.

Little plastic men on a rollup board.  Get a grip, people.

A lot of people like to drag psychology into chess as well, which seems to reflect a similar ignorance as to what they're actually talking about.
