I learned to play chess as a
kid. My level was pretty high until I grew fonder of girls and drugs
at age 12. I kind of picked up chess again in my late twenties, but
never was able to rise from the level of mediocrity or come
close to my earlier level. Its my personal aim to play gambits
(give a pawn away in order to develop quicker) in every opening to
avoid boring games. Since 1994 Im also into playing Chinese
chess. The game has different pieces and rules, but the goal is the
same checkmate the other king. Although in Chinese chess its
called a general, whilst its actually an emperor. This happened
to be like this during one of Chinas many dynasties in which
Chinese chess was forbidden, coz the emperor said there is only one
emperor and thats me! Everybody who plays chess is a rebel and
should accordingly be decapitated hence the renaming in general
by his successor and the present day big population of China. More
recently Im trying to learn Go or WeiQi. This game has the easiest
rules but the hardest strategies and techniques. Its played
on the crossings of a 19 by 19 board using only black and white stones
not to be mistaken with candies. Somebody brought over Japanese chess
one night which was very intresting either, don't know all the rules
