That is the advice I would give the unfortunate adventurer who has aimlessly wandered into this topic my evil lair.  Your lives would be forfeit had I not given each of you the right to challenge me, ActionDan, EVIL CHESS EXPERT AND GENERAL LIVES-IN-CAVE RESIDENT CRAZY DARK WIZARD SCIENCIST-ALCHEMIST GUY, to a game of chess; I do it to lord my superior intelligence over the rest of you lesser-mortals.  Did I mention that in the absolutely certain event of you losing the game, my magically imbued, 20 foot tall, and fully armed-to-the-teeth-with-pointy-things chess pieces will rip your body to shreds as you scream for mercy.  I also find that highly amusing.  If for some Godforsaken reason one of you more clever knaves manage to draw the game, I will begrudgingly allow you a onetime pass to exit without incident,  but you'd be a fool to come back!   Did some rapscallion just suggest that they may be able to WIN!  Perish the thought! And you mongrels will perish with it!  None can defeat me!  MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

I shall make this a chess simul exhibition.  Anyone can sign up, and I'll have signups last two days.  I shall give everyone one day to play a move, and I shall give myself one day to think about a reply for everyone before posting a wall with everyone's ongoing games and my reply bolded in green.  Previous moves will simply be bolded.  I request you guys post the full game with your reply bolded in w/e color tickles your fancy (while leaving previous moves, including my previous reply, simply bolded).   An understanding of chess notation is required.  Use ALGEBRAIC NOTATION. 

Quote from: Omba
Also, if you don't have enough space to keep a chessboard with the game standing around, just use something like this: http://www.chess.com/analysis-board-editor.html

Everybody gets 3 passes.  if you do not post a move by deadline, I will interpret that as passing, and allow you to wait until I reply to everyone else (basically each pass gives you an additional 2 days to think of your move).  After you use 3 passes, and fail to make deadline again, I will declare myself the winner, and you shall be shredded by my minions. I, however, may award myself a V/LA or the equivlent by my own discretion.  I will always reply to everyone at the same time. 

YOU WILL ALL BE PLAYING BLACK.   That's what happens in simuls.

Signups begin now!  You have until The fifth move by WHITE to sign up.
Signups are now closed

Well!

Deadline passed a while ago and 6 challengers stand before me.  VERY WELL!

Since this is the first move, it shall be the same for all of you.  Also I'll extend signups until the deadline for the first black move has past.   Please also reply to the first move. 

What is this genius first move you ask?

Why it could only be...

1. e4!

Suddenly the cave you are in lights up as semi-translucent and gloriously detailed chess pieces seemingly spring to life with a will of their own!  One white pawn from each board starts to slide along its craggy bottom until it stops two spaces in front of its King.

Good luck you ill-fated children, for you shall surely need it!  Chess pieces seal the exit and it seems you have no choice now but to play the game.  Your pieces look to you with expectation.  Command them and they will follow!

Deadline for a black move is 10 Pm (22:00 hours) EST Thursday.

Don't lynch me.

Gentlemen, let's divide and conquer. 6 different openings for maximum confusion. Did Sun Tzu himself not say, "though an obstinate fight may be made by a small force, in the end it must be captured by the larger force?"

But I do wonder what moves Dan is expecting us to make. I'm afraid he might have fallen victim to one of the classic blunders - the most famous of which is "never expect people to follow the rules to the letter" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go in against the Sicilian when chess is on the line!"

Did you fools really think that commanding your pieces to move would give you any respite?  Almost instantly the white pieces rattle and shake, responding with renewed vigor, as the next piece moves into the fray.

Well Deadline is past and while I can give myself a day to answer, I don't always need to use it.  New Deadline is 11/11/11 11:59 PM EST.

You can still signup if you ask!  But I'll close it down after the 5th move for sure.
