39 ( +1 | -1 ) Extreme ChessInspired by David Letterman's affirmation, "There just isn't enough televised chess," I thought we might brainstorm some ideas for making chess televisible. Extreme Chess is just one possibility. Episode One: All participants jump from a plane and commence play in free fall; the brilliancy prize is a parachute. Ideas for further episodes, or alternative series, are welcome.
23 ( +1 | -1 ) Synchronised chess ?! - It works for swimming. It could be in the next olympics alongside synchronised underwater basketweaving. You'll be a star at this one tertsius , keep up the training ;-)
26 ( +1 | -1 ) I like the idea similar tothe game Minesweeper. All 64 squares are mined and you make a bad move, well you will be playing the harp ;-0 I have a problem getting those speedo's to fit even though they are made of expando lycra, something to do with building a shed for the tools :((
6 ( +1 | -1 ) Celebrity Chess-Deathmatch, 1 match Bush vs Castro.
4 ( +1 | -1 ) ... whereonly one is a celebrity. The other one is an embarrasment ;o)
7 ( +1 | -1 ) Detonator under your chairSimple but effective. When the chessclock goes tic-tac it means business...
18 ( +1 | -1 ) I'd bet my money"Celebrity Chess-Deathmatch, 1 match Bush vs Castro."
I'd bet my money on Castro, even with the black peices, there's no way Bush is beating Castro at a game of chess.
25 ( +1 | -1 ) I still like baron's ideabut what if Jordan was a world class chess player who keeps her skill a secret in case it hurts her modelling career due to the damage it would do as she would no longer be a dumb blonde... in other words, what if we saw Judith in the nude instead???
6 ( +1 | -1 ) Successful precedentCertainly "The Naked News" appears to be a hit. Perhaps then...
