I was wondering, since this is a gaming forum, i would like to ask, if anyone here like old fashioned games, i mean, really OLD games, like chess or checkers, stuff like that, if you do play anything like that, say the site where you play, and your rating/rank.
Now i am Playing Chess on the Chess . com, bullet rating arround 950-1050, i don't play that much but it would be nice to see how many play chess.
checkers is fun. used to play all the time in grade 3/5.

I play checkers if the power goes out thats about it. There's actually a chess table in my house but no one uses it or hasen't in a long ass time.
Yeah, my dad has one board, that my grandfather bought, it is a big wooden board, handmade, 60+ years, one of the things that bothers me is that he never really learned how to play, and it just stays on the living room without seeing any action, my brother and i used to play, but now i am way ahead of him, so he doesn't play anymore.
The game is like a mental exercise, if you are serious about it. I don't like to sit and think about a move for over 30 seconds, so i play basically 1 mins, 2m/1s, or 5m/3s games, playing 1 min games for over an hour and you will find your brain is going 2x faster than before. The first time i spent like 2 hours straight playing 1 minutes, when i stoped i coudn't control my thoughts, i would close my eyes and see the board.
