I sent my invite to the wrong fatguy. A surprisingly large number of those accounts in Chess Time.

Invite sent to @Psychopav i may tap out for the evening in a little while. FYI, I may play slowly during the opening.  I've been playing a lot of computer matches lately and I tend to get swindle

I couldn't figure out how to resign but I did find an option to flip the board which was remarkably unsatisfying 

Sorry I missed this. Count me in as an alternate if needed. 

EDIT: Wait, is Chess Time mobile-only? If so I can't use it anyway. Oh well. 

I'm randall146 on chess.com if anyone wants to give me a good shellacking

Flip the board is my winning strategy for Monopoly and Risk.

I found that option as well when trying unsuccessfully to find the option to switch colors.

I may have just sent you a friend invite on chess.com (I'm originalsynapse). I just joined a few weeks ago and I have some figuring out to do on the website.

If I can bring myself to read some fine print, i want to see what all goes into and come out of setting up a chess club on chess.com. I would hope that it would make it easier to set up a tournament within the club, but what I'm reading about is that clubs challenge other clubs, like the Ryder Cup, or better yet Cheers taking on Gary's Olde Towne Tavern.

I have a paid membership, which is needed to start a club, but hopefully it's not a requirement to join.

Still no earthly idea what I am doing.  I created a chess club on chess.com called...wait for it...FBG Chess Club.

I checked option "not anyone can join," but I will paste an invite link below. Let's see what happens.

I just joined the FBG Chess Club - name is: Frinkahedron2000

If I remember right, you won the last one we played. Thank you for the game.

Yeah it was fun. Quite the puzzle there in the end after I exposed the king in terms of figuring out the best way to defend the g3 square. I think you actually had checkmate several moves before you ended it. If I can find some magic free time I'm hoping to analyze where I went wrong or if I had an escape there at some point that I missed.

Juxtatarot defeats Shuke. It was a good game until Shuke blundered away his queen.

That was a play I had in mind like 4 moves before, for someone reason I thought I was going to be able to trade queens and rooks with you.

Sorry, must have looked at the wrong post. 

I'd be nice if the first post had all the Chesstime names listed . . .
