  • Chess league discussion thread

    Following up on some discussion last week on a thread started by Trick Tony I figured I'd at least throw up a thread and see what kinda interest there might be in a Lounge chess league or competition or something.

    https://www.boxingscene.com/forums/s...d.php?t=861496

    Early days right now and I ain't got a fixed idea of what kinda format it'd take, though most likely I'd guess round robin, knockout or a longer term league format, mainly I just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in giving it a shot and if so how many and what sorta format people would prefer.

    Gonna include a poll of what sorta format folk would prefer, but feel free to throw in ideas you might have over what sort of game lengths would be prefered and anything else you might think of... just as with the Pick Em I'd be thinking about something pretty light hearted, kinda competitive fun and IDK... might even think about some kinda handicap system or whatever. Main thing is if you're interested get your name down and then we can figure out details once we see how many peoples - idf any - we got interested.

      Superb, man, I think we had 2 or 3 people at least on Trick Tony's thread say they were interested am I'm sure there'll be a few more.

        I know how to play but I’m not good. Never learned any strategy or anything. I’d still get in if something materializes.

          Yeah inevitably we're gonna have players from a lot of different levels so I don't whether we'd want to handicap or whatever, or if we use a league system maybe devise a system of more points for beating higher ranked players or whatever... IDK. main thing right now is just to gauge interest and see what people would like and how many want to give it a go.
