Reportage from the white square

June 5, 2007

“Yeah, I collect old books on chess, just memorizing moves and stuff. But what helps me most are chess horoscopes.”

“Oh! Wow, I’ve never even heard of such a thing.”

“They’re pretty amazing. My buddy, he’s a Leo, and the chess horoscopes all say that Leos play best with their bishops. When I read that, that was when I knew they were on to something. Cos you know how rooks are worth more than bishops? He’ll actually sacrifice his rook if it means keeping his bishop!”


“And me, I’m a Libra. And we’re supposed to be the best players overall, very balanced and analytical.”

“What about Sagittariuses?”

“Oh, I don’t know. I’ve gotta keep studying hard. That’s why I don’t play go or any variations. I don’t wanna be distracted, you know?”

    Like one of my co-workers said after this guy left the store, “I think playing chess too much makes you a little crazy.”
