  • Can I get better at chess by just playing?

    I'm not that great at it, but can i improve by just playing it over and over again? or can you only improve by learning from a book and techniques (something i'd rather not do, it would be less fun) but i do want to be better

  • What can the "horse" do in the game of chess??

    Best answer: L shape. It's special because it can move over other pieces. If there's 2 pieces ahead of the knight it can jump over them.

  • How to advertise a chess tutoring service?

    Best answer: Depending on where you live, I'd ignore much of what the anonymous guy said. 1850 could teach most people. 81% of active ratings in the USCF are below 1500; 50% are below 700. I know a sub-1300 player who gives lessons to younger kids (although, yeah, there are kids she can't teach because they are... show more
    Best answer: Depending on where you live, I'd ignore much of what the anonymous guy said. 1850 could teach most people. 81% of active ratings in the USCF are below 1500; 50% are below 700. I know a sub-1300 player who gives lessons to younger kids (although, yeah, there are kids she can't teach because they are better than her.) "The kid is probably going to be better than you by the time they're 10 or 11"? There are only 35 ten year olds and 38 eleven year olds in the nation with a rating over 1850. Yes, it could happen, but that just means you succeeded.

    I don't know where anonymous guy went to college, but nationwide there are fewer than 100 active GMs and fewer than 250 combined active GMs and IMs, and there are more than 1000 colleges in the US. So, even if all of them decided to enroll in college next year, the odds are against there being even one GM or IM on your campus (unless you happen to go someplace like the University of Baltimore.)

    However, you're probably not going to find a ton of college students with the time, money, and inclination to pay for chess lessons for themselves, and most college students don't have kids they'd want lessons for. Math might be more a popular tutoring subject in college, but you propose only high school level math, not college level math like calculus. So you might want to advertise to the community rather than just the college.

  • Poll: What are your top 5 favorite board games of all times?

    Best answer: That's a pretty mainstream top five. If I had to go for a top five of only games you could have found in high-street stores growing up, mine would have turned out a little different: 1: Space Crusade 2: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Board Game 3: Stratego 4: Escape from Atlantis 5: Scotland Yard If you want... show more
    Best answer: That's a pretty mainstream top five. If I had to go for a top five of only games you could have found in high-street stores growing up, mine would have turned out a little different:

    1: Space Crusade
    2: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Board Game
    3: Stratego
    4: Escape from Atlantis
    5: Scotland Yard

    If you want an actual top 5, then that's going to play out a little differently:

    1: Go
    2: Betrayal at House on the Hill
    3: Lost Cities
    4: Minion Hunter
    5: Carcassonne

    (This list is a bit arbitrary actually, and depending on the day, games such as Northwest Passage, Condotierre, Marvel Legendary, Star Wars Assault on Hoth, Heroclix, Through the Desert or Ingenious could easily make the grade).

    To be fair, here's the list of games that I play with my kids, so their favourites.

    1: City of Zombies
    2: Star Wars: Assault on Hoth
    3: Pegged Out
    4: Chicken Cha Cha Cha
    5: Super Rhino/Rhino Hero.

    I hope some of these are what you're looking for.
