Extreme Chess Inspired 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.

maybe maybe a bit less harsh: players who agree to a quick draw have their parachutes taken away.

parachutes are for sissys only real men play hurtling to earth chess with bounce boots, parachutes are passe.

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 ;-)

Oh Baron You lowering the tone again? *lol* How about using poisonous berries instead of pieces and every time you take one you have to eat it?

I like the idea similar to the 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 :((

Celebrity Chess-Deathmatch, 1 match Bush vs Castro.

Detonator under your chair Simple but effective. When the chessclock goes tic-tac it means business...

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.

I still like baron's idea but 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???

Successful precedent Certainly "The Naked News" appears to be a hit. Perhaps then...
