Default the game of chess is not like a sword fight

due to the difficulty that some people are having with this thread

i have decided to revise it




chess is a really good metaphor for sword-fighting

that is all

some aspects of chess are similar to sword fighting

this is true



but
there are no illegal sword fighting moves





have you ever tried moving a rook diagonally?

your opponent might stop playing if you did that

maybe recreational sword fighting is different from your-life-is-on-the-line sword fighting


which may be another difference from chess
are there any your-life-is-on-the-line chess situations?

damn

thats a really good point




i think the Coalition for Responsible Employment and Application of Metaphors should be sued for letting out this false information


seriously tho

you make a good point for the existence of serious chess vs serious sword fighting


this point of view has been approved

peace

Chess and fights are mad similar. Whether its unarmed or swordfights. You try get the center of the surroundings and dominate, cover all angles at each side, and plan attacks based on what you see fae the enemy. But at the end of the day all the rules, tactics, etc; are all determined by instincts. And its instincts that determine the victor both in a sword and chessfight Peace.

have u ever heard of the fucking word metaphor?

u dont play chess with 2 sharp metal weapons and try to kill the oppossition, no shit

but u do have to think before every move of every possibility and try to outwit your opponent and move in for the kill with as little moves as possible

in order to defeat ur opponit in a sword fight u need to
think 2 moves ahead
while thinking 2 moves ahead of what ur opponite will do at the same time

same rules apply in chess
