    Me.

    One app I'd reccomend is Chess Time. Supports crossplay between the Droid masterrace and the sheepish iPhone fools.

    Well that'd make it even more convenient. Being stuck on PC, I've been using chess.com to try playing with a buddy every friday.

    As per Is It Tuesday, I think it'd be neat to get a tourney among us going.

    On principle: I'd be in.
    But since I sit in Germany, it all depends on the time, as usual.

    As I said in the other thread, with chess.com the games are turn-based, so you can take as much time as you want. I think the limit is like 3 days or something. You don't live that far in the future.

    I don't know how to react to this Gif, so I'll just say: checkmate, mate.

    Same with Chess Time; and it's also handy enough to send you notifications if you forget to make a move.

    I could use somebody who knows how to play well(preferably better than me). So far I've only been playing my IRL buddy and I've been spanking him at 6 wins to 1 loss, with a draw in the middle. It's nice for my confidence, but I'd like to play some sharks who can teach me some more advanced stuff.

    I'm interested, but I'm horrible at Chess. I learned to play it in the homeless shelter, but around the time I started getting decent in it was the time I left there. Then I got some new people to play against, but they were all annoying snobs who had this annoying playstyle that's not too different from the "360 noscope" or "don't worry im pro at laegue" attitudes.

    If there's other players who aren't too great, or people who don't mind playing against someone isn't a complete pro at chess, then sure, I'm game.

    Much more of a Go player, but sure.
