    Knock Knock:D - Add-ons

    Is it possible and practical to attach a live chess game gadget app to TFSA in some manner, as a TFSA app for members?
    I am no Grand Master or anything, the thought just passed my mind.
    I am not thinking hectic gamer villa or something grotesque

    Something sensible

    What are your thoughts?

    Probably. I remember from the time I was haunting forum webmaster circles there were quite a few games application integrations out there.

    But before I go hunting, perhaps the question that needs an answer is "Should we add a ....?"

    Opinions, anyone?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Love chess. I am the undisputed champion of my home (my wife does not play chess - she gave up when I laughed at her for calling the knight a dog)

    The idea of games in the forum does not particularly appeal to me, but it might meet a need that others have.

    Lol....I must not be so humble, in fact I am the holder of the pozi competition champion belt. My wife does not compete anymore so the comp has been set aside. She also gave up, caused by my laughter.

    I would second that request for a chess game, I'm not a champion either, but I hate playing against the computer (it always makes the same moves and is too predictable), I would love to be able to play against a real individual.

    PS. My wife and kids gave up long ago, especially when my wife's pawns could move as queens... much laughter of course.

    @PMBGuy, (or any other interested party) we can still play with "chess notation" if you are game for it, does require a mental capacity to know where everything is on a virtual board, or we can follow by making the moves on a real board that you keep in your office? Or we can draw a simple chess board on an excel spreadsheet and keep track by moving the cells around?

    @-Dave S, I have a chess set on display here in the office, but hardly anybody plays. I hope I will be a worthy opponent, I am no. Bobby, lets jam!

    Perhaps we should play on my profile, “visitor message”?
