It's boxing! It's chess! It's both!

And it has a new champion.

Seriously, this sport is screwed up. Yet kinda looks awesome. Germany is wierd.

Oh, man, I heard about this! It’s up there with that one sport where you chase a wheel of cheese down a steep hill in terms of awesomely stupid!

I think this is an awesome idea.

I like it :smiley:

As in I’d like to participate :smiley:

I am so hitting you with a chess board when I see you again. :stuck_out_tongue:

From the people who brought us polka and tiny little mustaches? Can’t say I’m surprised.
Well, I mean, I am surprised. But…you know.

Zero, great find. I’ll have to investigate this more.

Agreed. This looks like an amazing sport. Also, it could completely change trash tv if it came to the US.

O.O I knew something odd was coming soon. My Insanity Senses were going bonkers since last week! Now I have found that oddity and I am content. Strange things make me happy! :smiley:

I’ll hit you back :smiley:

Da Mystery Of Chessboxin’




Holy shitski! The Sokolsky Opening!!! I remember this opening from the Boris Spassky vs. Vasily Smyslov game during the 1960 Moscow Leningrad match.
You guys are awesome, and playing this within a 12 minutes time frame is worth an induction into some kind of Hall of Fame. :wink:

What this tells me is that we need more combination fighting/board games. If you need me, I’ll be off developing Kung Fu Battleship.

Are you into chess, Seifer?

GG, I think someone had produced a chess where after threatening a piece you had to beat/shoot it to take it off the board.

Yes, I like chess. Mind you, the last time I played was a while ago. Now I am a little rusty game-wise. I would say that I am a slightly above average player. A few years ago I thought that I was good enough to make some side money playing chess, so I entered the tournament in my neck of the woods. My accomplishment: 2 wins, 1 tie and 2 losses – and that was in the lowest ranked section – I ain’t Kasparov for sure.
Now, I’d rather play the stock market than chess. :wink:

Cool. The closest I came to being a chess player was reading Nabokov’s The Luzhin Defense.
