New Addiction: Chess

I never touched/played Chess before until my brother bought a Chess last two weeks. This board game is my new drug and I`m addicted to it! xD

A bit info about chess:

Chess is a recreational and competitive board game played between two players. The current form of the game emerged in Southern Europe during the second half of the 15th century after evolving from similar, much older games of Indian and Persian origin. Today, chess is one of the world's most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide at home, in clubs, online, by correspondence, and in tournaments.

The game is played on a square chequered chessboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. At the start, each player (one controlling the white pieces, the other controlling the black pieces) controls sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent's king, whereby the king is under immediate attack (in "check") and there is no way to remove it from attack on the next move.[Wikipedia]

I`ve played 11 games with my brother and never won any of them! I`m still a noob in this business!

My recommendation is to play shogi games on-line on the after you will become strong enough to beat the Hamster by
watching HIDETCHI's shogi videos
