There's numbers and letters along the sides of (most/some) chessboards, and the players would just say, for example, 1. e4 c5, 2. f4 Nc6... Etc, where the pieces are denoted by: King - K, Knight - N, Queen - Q, Bishop - B, Rook - R, and pawn moves are just given by the square to which the pawns are being moved. Both players could just get out boards and play through the moves to see the position if they wished, or just play without one.
Anyhow, I'm willing to give anyone a game, albeit a rather slow one, probably. Pick whatever colour you want.

I am quite excited to discuss the supremacy of d4, preferably while wearing one of my chess tournament shirts. Therefore, no one will be able to miss my pretentiousness!

I like chess, but how could you play without a board? I can see two people moving pieces on their own board, but it is a little too complex!

I'm probably somewhat rusty and my response time wouldn't likely be very fast, but would anyone be interested in a casual game of correspondence chess? I don't think posting separate moves in comments would be a good idea, but PMs can always be used, though I suppose it might be interesting if others could follow the game. Though the game could always be posted here after it is finished, in a single comment. Unless it would be a bad idea. But anyway!

So, anyone interested in playing? I suppose this Interest page could be used as a way of finding people to play with. And we could totally have long-winded debates about the supremacy of d4 openings in comparison to e4 openings, certainly, while pretentiously exaggerating our knowledge about in-depth Chess strategy!

Corelis... it's on! :D

I'm going to get revenge from my utter and spectacular failure last time! No, seriously, would you like to play again? We were fairly evenly matched, or something, and I've been meaning to play against you again...

Sure, let's have a rematch. The game before indeed was fairly evenly matched, so I am curious to see how this one will turn out.

What a perfect timing you have, too! I just finished a game of chess with Lanoc the day before yesterday. I lost, by the way. I recommend playing against him, if he has the time.

Do you have any preference on which colour you'd like to play? We could always randomize, but I have been playing white quite a lot recently... I've barely played black at all. So I would be interested in playing black for once... though that might hamper my chances of winning. You almost had the previous game, after all. Anyway, it is your pick, random or otherwise. I certainly intend to not go down without a fight, that is for certain.

It doesn't matter either way! I've been playing chess through school now, so I'm a bit less 'out of it' since the last time we played! And this time, perhaps I'll concentrate better as well!

Yeah, seeing as I have to play both colours for chess tournaments, I'm rather used to playing on both sides of the board. If I remember correctly, I played white last time (we played the Fried Liver) so do you just want to switch this time? Unless, of course, you want to try your luck at black again?

We indeed did play Fried Liver, but I am quite certain I was white in that game. That's why I offered a change - I was white against Lanoc too, and thought that it might be refreshing to play black for once. Usually when I play (very casual games) with a friend of mine, I play white too.

Ohh, tournament play. I've never tried my hand at anything like that - I would probably fail spectacularly. I haven't been playing casually that much either... We'll see how this will go.

I think I'd prefer to play black this time, and since you have no objections, I suppose it is settled, then. Feel free to PM me your first move whenever you feel like it.
