That's OK, I was just wanting to learn the notation and follow other people's games.  But I keep having to spend all my time posting here ;-)

So if you will put one grain of rice on the first square, two on the next square and double each time until we get to the 64th square ...

Oh I know, you are European, so you will get mad, overturn King Offa's chess board, and lose your head

*sigh* old trick about the rice.  Stop posting about stuff you don't understand, OK? ...

I can more easily excuse Gilgamesh ... this was a Sept 2017 post you are reacting to here.  Sad.

Chess never grows old does it?  I was watching a history show that very specifically talked about Ben Franklin playing chess with the French aristocracy, and while I loved the history, I kept pausing the DVD to try to figure out the openings and midgame moves on the board.  It was never detailed enough.    Probably Ruy Lopez and Giacco Piano. 

But of course it was just a show, so the board positions probably didn't reflect any reality.

Would have been nice though if they had shown the boards clearly with some accuracy of the times...

Yep, Mr. Franklin had a real passion for chess, but apparently not all that much talent:

There are times when a reply is idiotic and makes no sense.  And then there are times when a post is perfectly suited to the previous post.

You, sir, did a brilliant and rather unforgettable reply.

Thank You, thank you, thank you.  I enjoyed the links completely.

That was actually kind of sad...  I understand the humor of the production, but you know what I mean...

Additional dementia will help with that ... you will forget your next move, by the time you move to the other side of the board ;-(
