I love chess. Also, years ago, someone beat you to the concept of using lights and accessories as chess pieces.

I got into chess back in 2001 because one of my sister's friends that was hot played it.

When in the Chess Club I had an agreement that I never needed to show up to any official matches and would only play at like lunchtime meets.

On Chess.com my score was really low. I had the strategy at some point to win by default in making turns last like 3 hours or so. Once the other person gave up from it taking so long I could win by default.

In prison I finally learn 'opening moves' from one of the Muslim bros. I lose a lot of games if I won any it was because the other person was very unskilled. I once lost a match in less than 10 moves but it was probably less than that.

Now I play N64.

I love playing chess—it's such a timeless game that really tests your strategy and patience. I remember learning it from my dad when I was a kid, and now I play with friends whenever we get together. It's always a good challenge, no matter how many times you've played.

When I want something more relaxing but still mentally engaging, I turn to spider solitaire. It's perfect for winding down after a busy day. If chess ever feels too intense, it's a great alternative to keep your mind sharp without the pressure.

Well, it can get boring if you're playing against high level experts. They always make the same moves, especially starting out, with little variations. Ironically if you want an unpredictable challenge, play someone who is relatively new to the game. They're the ones who are unpredictable.
