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.

Chess is a game for 2 players, each of whom moves 16 pieces according to fixed rules across a checkerboard and tries to checkmate the opponent's king. It is the king of all games. It dates back well over 1000 years and is descended from the ancient Aryan game chaturanga (which is also the ancestor to shogi). It requires concentration, patience, and strategy.

For many centuries, there was no formal world chess championship, but there were nonetheless a select few who achieved fame for their ideas and successes over the chess board, and sometimes even for their writings.

The World Chess Championship was officially created in 1886 when Wilhelm Steinitz defeated Johannes Zukertort in a historic match and became the first champion, holding the title until 1894 when he lost to Emanuel Lasker.

With the exception of Bobby Fischer (1972-1975), the Soviet Union dominated chess during the Cold War. The current champion since 2007 is Viswanathan Anand of India.
Chess is everything: art, science and sport.

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.

Probably the most unwinnable game since the computerwas able to play with you. Basically, if you win, you feel like a celebrity, and if you lose, well, you die a little inside.
Dude that just won chess: "YES. I FEEL LIKE A GOD!"
Dude that just loss chess: "......I'm gonna go kill myself."

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.
