What is your current avatar on CC Zone?

Recommended Posts

That just makes me wish my girlfriend knew how to play chess...

 

Better yet, I wish she were willing to learn how to play chess.....

Wow. Chess babe.

I feel you, man. Chess-playing women are hot.

Actually, it's more fun to play cards.

 

Admittedly, I've made a lot more money at cards than I ever have at chess. Still, chess is aesthetically pleasing to me...cards are just a way of hustling a few extra bucks.

 

 

Now it's time to make everyone run away by changing my avatar to.. the Walker.

It took some time to find a small enough graphic online to copy -- it had a white background, so I used ice.

 

Also, how can quarks have colors when they are smaller than all wavelengths of visible light?

Isn't rock weak against ice? :P

 

Quarks don't really have color. We say they have color charge only to describe their strange three way interaction, hence red, green, and blue.

To be honest, I never played or collected pokemon, so I only know a few things. I'm a little more familiar with classic Yugioh -- I'd like to change my avatar to Skull Knight, but the CC Editor resolution is too low for a good rendering. I may change anyway using a standard JPG.

I have nothing against it. Walkers are far from the most annoying creatures in CC, imo.

 

Plus, it goes well with your current blob image (what are those called? The thumbnails next to the Level markers...)

I'm having trouble viewing those links, Flareon...but based on Google, I think the Leafeon one's better. (Y)

 

Me too so I'm going with it :P

You would be correct.

 

Jennifer Shahade- author of Chess Bitch. Frankly, I'm not that wild about her games (she's certainly no Judit Polgar!), and at times she sinks into the sort of extremism that gives feminism a bad name, but hey...I'll go along with that for the sake of popularizing chess. (Y)

Chess is no challenge compared to Duplicate Contract Bridge.

 

I lose at both, of course. I have more of a chance if we're playing Euchre or Checkers.

...well, at least with chess, you know that a 1200-rated player is never going to beat a grandmaster, no matter how many games they play (unless the grandmaster is thoroughly wasted, or unless he/she dies while playing the game and hence loses on time). With cards, there's always the chance that a complete idiot will win a hand here and there...

Well, "never" isn't true. If I randomly picked moves to make, I could beat a grandmaster (just with extremely low probability). But yeah, the randomness in card games can be extremely angering...not that randomness reduces the amount of skill required, it just reduces the impact of that skill.

 

I need to get back in to bridge. My parents are both life masters and I used to be decent but stopped, partly out of being unable to find a partner. For anyone who hasn't played it, there is indeed a ton of skill involved (it's one of two "mind sports" recognized by the International Olympic Committee, the other obviously being chess). Most bridge players tend to play backgammon as well, which is also fun and dependent on a ton of skill...sigh, my affinity for combo skill/chance games gives me more interests than I know what to do with :(

 

Also, somebody (read: BitBuster) needs to make a Chess thread. We need to get some intra-community games going! We could even do some Malkovich games. (a concept which can be extended to more than chess)

Good catch. I retract my previous statement.

Ah, haven't I made enough enemies already with my rabid thread-making? ;)

I like this idea. (Y)

Well, I did play duplicate for a while, but keeping track of the conventions got old. Remembering Blackwood and NONE and all that stuff started to make my head hurt.

 

Still, I like weak two bids and Jacoby transfers.

 

And I do not like backgammon -- go figure!
