Hello everyone! :)
I play chess quite a bit and I would like to issue a challenge to anyone and everyone in the forum:
I would like to challenge everyone to a game of "postal" chess.
Using the PMs (or email if you prefer) I will play against as many people as are interested in individual games of chess.
If you are interested, please PM me, but please do not post a reply in this topic, as I would like to use this thread to display the moves made, so that anyone who wants to "watch" may do so.

Other info:
-It would probably help to keep an actual setup of the game somewhere (this is how I will be playing, though a pen and paper should suffice).
-You will have the option to choose white or black.
-Please let me know your approximate skill level when you PM me, so that I may gauge if I should go easy on you or not. ;)
-I am not able to use the computer every day, or for long periods, so each game may last for many weeks, possibly months.
-If you want to play, please let me know within two weeks. All games will begin at the same time after that, though they won't end at the same time! :lol:
-Please please please DON'T USE A COMPUTER CHESS PROGRAMME! The purpose of this excercise, apart from entertainment, is for me to test my own chess skills. If you use a chess game, I am effectively playing against a computer and I really hate computer chess.

Thanks for your time, and good luck! :)

Emily, The Red Queen.

P.S. I am interested in all feedback, so if you don't want to play but think this is a good/bad/stupid idea, don't hesitate to PM me!

The Red Queen drew herself up rather stiffly, and said "Queens never make bargains."
"I wish Queens never asked questions," Alice thought to herself.
