Maybe we could get a Grogheads chess group together and do some online playing?

Note that I reserve the right to AAR any of my games -- using Regicide hotseat to recreate our moves.  :D
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I learned to play chess in school and even joined the chess club. I've played a lot over the years. Its still a great game.

Note, I also play Shogi, which is Japanese chess.

I added some android/Ipod/Iphone free chess resources to the bottom of the first post.

I've dabbled with Lichess, it seems good for online play, and even has a mobile port. All free.

What is NOT free is a Masterclass with Kasperov.

If you want to be taught chess by the best, using personally coached video and content... it's about 70 for the course with the main man. :) I bought it for my Brother's present this year.
