Would you like to play a game?

-Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War.

-Wouldn’t you prefer a nice game of chess? 

As a matter of fact, I would prefer a nice game of chess. How about you?

It’s been far too long since I’ve played chess against anyone who was over nine years old. Through a post over on Metafilter I ended up signing up for an account at Red Hot Pawn, a pretty good correspondence chess site (even if the name seems to suggest something less wholesome). I’ve started a couple of games against anonymous opponents but would love to play against a friend or two.

If you’re interested, head on over, create an account and look me up. My user name, as you might expect, is Ickster. Hope to get a couple of challenges soon!
