an extremely challenging, complex game that heightens your skills to think ahead. there are more rules than can be put into a book and it's usually played by intellectuals, though not all of them can be considered "geeks", some are hot.
Chess is commonly misconcieved to be boring or stupid.

A game that's a lot harder than you think it is.

The most underrated game in human history.

A game that has been completely fucked over by ignorant shitheads who spit dirt on the game that now has a reputation of being easy, that "it's just strategy."

Yes, they are right that chess is only strategy. I wonder why they haven't googled "best chess strategies" and become a world champion?

The complexity of the game is summarized best by Grandmaster Huebner: "Those who say they understand chess, understand nothing."
Chess Player: Hey do you play chess?

Non-Chess Player: No, but when I was in 5th grade I beat my teacher! Isn't that amazing?

Chess Player: Smiles and quickly walks away, thinking, "Why do others just can't understand that age has nothing to do with chess! Beating a 50 year old who played only two games in his whole life is NOT impressive compared to beating a 6 year old who've been playing for a year! Do they really think adults played fucking chess their whole life and are supposed to be better? In last tournament I got fucked over by a 13 year old and then beat six adults and got second place with $2,000 prize money. Oh, like this dumbass'll even let me finish that last sentence before he laughts his ass of."

Beautiful, subtle game that still hasn't been "solved" by high-speed computers. It suffers a terrible rep because its main enthusiasts are Asperger's types like myself, but like Deadheads (who I abhor) used to say, "If you have to ask, you're never gonna get it". Say it clear, say it loud, I'm a chess geek and I'm proud!
And that is "geek", never "chess nerd".

The black-and-white geometric jungle of puzzles and maneuvers.
We play chess, blitz and bullet, straining to see through the squares and into the unseen world of possibilities.

The process of sitting down in front of an Asian person, thinking to one's self, ''Oh, shit, it's an Asian person,'' and losing to said Asian person whilst one comforts one's self that, well, it was okay because it was an Asian person.
When playing chess, it is okay to lose, because after all, it was an Asian person.
