How about a nice game of Chess

Shamus inspired me to add a Games category to the blog. I’m not much of a console guy but I think that geek culture gaming is a broad field, encompassing old-fashioned PC games, arcade games, and even AD&D and Magic: The Gathering. So there’s plenty to talk about. But in the meantime, let’s inaugurate the category by mentioning the fantastic website,, which offers online versions of every classic game you can think of, including chess, battleship, othello, Go, and more. Check it out, I am user “abde” if you want to invite me for a match.
