Hi. I'm Dan, an admin in the forums. Come down and say things to us. You'll float, too.

"Nihil" is the pseudonym I use for writing and gaming on the internet. I came across Destructoid by searching for information on Way of the Samurai 3. Tubatic had the most comprehensive coverage on it I'd seen anywhere.

For that, and for leading me to this awesome community, I thank him.

A lil' while before Thanksgiving, I announced the grand opening of the Official Destructoid Chess Club. If you missed it, it was glorious.

I also announced that the first official tournament would happen soon. Actually, it's happening. Like, right now. But that doesn't mean you can't still be in it! I'm waiting on a few semi-confirmed players to check in. They (and you) have until the first round of matches finish within the next 3-4 days.


If your name isn't green, then you have not checked in!

In case you don't plan on bothering with the forum thread:

RULES - Due to the nature of time zones, people are going to find it difficult to match up against one another for a solid session. As such, I'd advise messaging your opponents your play schedules, and attempt to synch up in order to get the most moves in.

TIME LIMITS: The time limit per move must be set to 24hrs (1 Day/turn). The time limit per match will be 3 Days (timed by myself). If the in-game timer runs out on your turn, it will count towards your elimination losses. If the match has not ended by the end of Day 3, both players will be knocked out of the tournament, no matter whose turn it is.

MATCH START/FINISH: You must update this post (but preferably the thread) when your match has officially begun, and with the results of your match, so that I may time your matches and update the bracket/scoreboard. Failure to do so in a timely fashion will result in elimination.

Most matches will be held via, but there's also Chess Time for mobile app users to pair up with.

The winner of this tournament will be given the coveted title of King of the Destructoid Chess Club, which I currently hold the rights to!

They will also get this:

As if it had to be reiterated, again - NONE OF US ARE PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS! This is purely for fun and the love of the game. But that said, bring your A-Game, because we're playing to win, and I'm not just gonna let you take my crown.

Yous gonna hafta earn that shit, son.

Godspeed and may the best brain win!
