“Wouldn’t you rather play a nice game of chess?” – Joshua, the WOPR US defense computer, speaking to Matthew Broderick in “Wargames”.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Matthew Broderick, though I think that was in a different movie.
Anyway, this week, we’re playing the 1979 Atari stalwart VIDEO CHESS. You thought you knew chess, but you haven’t lived until you’ve seen rooks and bishops and whatnot rendered in digital form. It’s gonna get CRRRAZZY up in here! How can I ever make a story from this game? No, seriously. HOW?
Thanks to Mike Mann for his “Mad Mike” theme.
