But that happened because I left him without any more pieces left rather than the king, shouldn't it count as a Checkmate? It's so unfair to lose with that huge advantage!

Listen, grasshopper, those are the rules. Get used to it.

Stalemate-If the king is not in check, and the opponent has no legal moves, (pieces, pawns, and/or king) It’s counted as a draw, sry, GG, RIP

I had a Queens king and Castle left, my opponent had a king left, he made 4 consecutive same movement, I was going to go in for the kill and then…it was a draw😵‍💫

Might have been a draw by threefold repetition. Can you post a link to the game?

And checker players will say that the chess rules are totally unfair. Why have game victory hinge on the fate of one single unit, i.c. the king? Why not demand the destruction of the complete army before you can make that claim? The allies would have lost WW II, had they resigned the day Franklin D. Roosevelt died. Isn't chess weird?

The answer is of course is that most arguments about rules are completely non-sensical. As long as you know what the rules are, as a human being you are presumed capable of managing them properly. If you can't, you are incompetent and you lose. It's well deserved!

But yet, when it comes to bees, if you don't kill the queen bee, you achieved nothing because they will reproduce. Kill the queen and the rest die. So chess is like killing a swarm of bees!

man's wise words lol *no offense*
