    Haha, I often play chess at parties, and let me tell you, it's no chick magnet. People often get annoyed by it, and seem to feel it ruins the party or whatever. Last party I was on people was so annoyed they hid the board from us. I might just be hanging out with the wrong crowd though.

    How large are the parties?

    Playing chess at a party is kind of reminiscent of playing chess at the park.

    Well, fascinating as the game may be, playing it at a party is not an act of social involvement , unless perhaps when you play the variation of which I forgot the exact name ("madhouse"?) where you two duo's play eachother and you can pass the captured pieces on to your partner. That is hilarious.

    Small. Parties are not really my thing (duh), and large ones even less, of course, being introverted and all.

    Haha, social involvement is overrated. Have never tried madhouse, but sure I would like it, but I think people at parties would hate it – it's simply chess.

    Can someone please make a white move?

    Are you a chess groupie or a chess player? Splittet is playing black by himself.
