What's your favorite cousin's night memory?

Ssars’s Profile PhotoSayed Sibtain Ali Rizvi
We played bluff and chess all night and did some baking. Watched the sunrise and ate mangoes right off the tree just after sunrise. Had the time of our lives while playing ankh macholi in the morning. Probably my favourite ever memory.

If you were to challenge d€ath to a game to save your life, what would you choose to play? ☠️♟

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I can't think of anything profoundly useful where I would be confident enough to put my life on the line. I am bad at chess, board and card games are just as equally as tricky as any other classic match with another person and don't get me startet with staring contests.
I so wish I could use my Déath Note to gamble a bit with a Shinigami but that would absolutely serve no purpose in regards to my own life. Maybe I could come up with a riddle only I am familiar with. No one said I had to play fair, right?

Ah, meine visuelle Lieblingsfrage: ein bombastisch tolles mehr oder weniger berühmtes Öl- oder anderweitiges Gemälde für deinen demigod?

somewhatunpretentious’s Profile PhotoHitchhiker
ich bin ehrlich, ich habe einfach mal einen vibe eingegeben und bin tatsächlich super schnell fündig geworden. das gemälde heißt chess deep thoughts von gull g (ich habe wirklich mehrmals nachgeschaut, ob es noch einen anderen titel gibt, aber scheinbar ist das tatsächlich der einzige name).
ich persönlich finde, es spiegelt briar einfach total gut wider, auch wenn es doch einen anderen vibe hat, als all die anderen bilder, die schon hier auf ask geteilt wurden. es hat etwas geordnetes und akurates, aber ist am ende eben auch nicht perfekt nur mit einem lineal gezeichnet, wenn das sinn macht und irgendwie passt das einfach zu briar. vor allem aber der bezug zum schach, ist einfach nur perfekt, da briar das leben nun einmal als ein einziges schachspiel sieht, dass sie mit den richtigen überlegungen besiegen kann und ich glaube kaum ein anderes bild könnte das so perfekt ausdrücken, wie dieses hier.

What’s your guys favourite sport? Mine is football and mma

I'm all about that snooker life 🤩
It's like playing pool, but with a touch of British sophistication and a lot more colourful balls 🙃
Also, it's like a combination of chess and pool, but with a lot more awkwardly long cues and intense concentration 👀

do you know how to play chess?

I used to! I was in chess club as a kid haha. But I've not played it in years. I did get asked to play with someone last year, but they had to help remind me as I played, because I kept forgetting what each piece did again ha.

You never fight with ghost. You fight with the inner demons within you.. Remember who is in control at all times! ✅ Checkmate!

Can confirm. As a ghost who has exorcised his inner demons, I will attest that it has never been easier to remain in control. 3D chess? I'm game! Name the time and place. 👍

When JR Capablanca was very young (like 5 years) he was watching a chess game between his uncle and his father. The pieces were accidentally hit. The young kid automatically rearranged them in perfect order. They all were awed. His father then took him to the local chess club, where he easily and surprisingly defeated Every single player. His father, very sadly, limited his chess play for some rare hours lest the young kid should neglect his studies and develop a chess obsession. This very young kid grew up to become the third world chess champion, the fastest human to play chess, and the idol that inspired thousands to love and play simple brilliant chess till TODAY.

Have you had any experience of taking care of elderly people? Whether you worked in elderly care or in your personal life. How did / do you find it? 🧓

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Not really. I've always been scаred of caring work, because I'm afrаid I can't cope and I don't know what to do in some unusual cases. And the old people here are mostly very independent, many work until they diе and will never go to a elderly care. Some resort to suicidе in order not to strаin relatives, while others periodically or permanently live in the hоspital, there are also those who say nothing to anyone and simply diе alоne.
When my grandpa was ill, I also came to visit him, but dad and grandma did the main work. I just translated his words to them because they didn't really understand his speech after the paralуsis. Usually we played chess or he asked me to tell him what was interesting at school or what the weather was like outside (he couldn't walk to the window). He was very upset that he was causing so much inconvenience, so he cut the special tubes.

What do you call a person with no nose and no body? Nobody knows

dwilhite942560’s Profile PhotoAZ™
The question of which elephant does not have a nose is the chess one, and the one who is without a body and eyes, who is a cloud🤣
Вопрос у какого слона нет носа, так это у шахматного, а тот кто кто без тела и глаз, это туча🤣

You strike me as the kind of man who plays chess

As he closed his eye for a brief moment, the blob responded, "Mmm..." His tentacles coiled and hung limply. It's reasonable to assume that was his confirmation. I'm curious as to who he plays with since he believes everyone else's IQ is in the negatives however, one thing is certain: the Prince of Darkness was bored and restless. Which is never good, you may even call it the quiet before his storm. Quite fitting for a drama queen.

Describe yourself in a paragraph.

I'm a 30-something, single, college educated, middle class woman. People describe me as strong-willed, confident, distant, aggressive and funny. I describe myself as a wordsmith (occupation), ass-shaker (hobby), car singer (secret talent) and sexy nerd who can have a conversation with anyone - but would prefer to be left the fuck alone. 9/10 times, I'm thinking, "move out of my way, don't start, you tried it (and failed), don't bother me, where can I get some chocolate?," or Spanish music lyrics. I love rarely, but hard and cut people off often and easily. Earth is ghetto, I wanna leave. But for now I'll just get high and wish I could be with the one man who knows how to turn on my body and shut off my brain. I collect things—comic books, bottles of cologne, sunglasses, platinum and tungsten carbide jewelry, art (traditional and digital), photographs and many other things. I enjoy strategy games like chess and Magic, my favorite formats being the older ones. I'm an atheist and skeptic. I wear black a lot, which I see as representing neither a brooding personality nor an inclination towards a gothic motif. My taste in music and film is eclectic. I'm currently writing a novel set in Afghanistan. I don't consume drugs or alcohol because I don't trust myself to do either in moderation. My sense of humor is dark, bordering on morbid but I still love Disney films like The Little Mermaid. I don't put a lot of stock in IQ tests and think people who brag about their IQ are generally losers. Sports involving a ball bore me to tears. I hate pop music and bright colors. I voted green party in the past two presidential elections. I love Coke and hate Pepsi. I put ice in all my drinks. My favorite colognes are tea scented. Whip Inflation Now. Make love, not war. Why are you still reading this?
I work as an engineer for the Director of Operations at a robotics company. I do what needs doing and enjoy it, but ultimately my career is just a job. I collect myriad hobbies and inevitably discard them, as nothing maintains interest. Principally, I read history, philosophy, and science, mostly during lunch. I also play guitar and study foreign languages. I feel very alive when listening to the right music, and I feel mostly dead otherwise. Regarding personality, I'm like a still ocean, occasionally disturbed by ripples in the wake of a passing ship, but only ever lightly, and never for long. I appreciate irony.
I'm quiet and scared shitless most of the time. I tend to come across as a know-it-all but this is usually just a mask for my insecurity. I have a fear of abandonment so I get emotionally attached too easily. I'm pretty intuitive and I like philosophy.

Who was the nerdiest person in your high school days

Great question, I like it.
Back in the day a classmate of mine named Kyle was a brilliant chess player (he had also played in chess Competitions and won many) I used to go visit him at the library as did many others, I never seen him lose a game even at school! He also taught me his tricks and how to play chess, he was a genius.

What's your favorite board game? Why? ♟️🎲

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Chess is my favourite, but it is funny that you brought this up just now, because I'm in a process of designing my own board game as a project for the uni. And so far it's coming out really good, so maybe this will become my favourite 😆

What would be your ideal lifestyle?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
Living alone, taking my time with life. I always imagined being a stay at home wife😅 Apartment in a safe part of the city, over a coffee shop. happy kids, happy marriage, happy me. enough money to be comfortable but not so much I get stupid with it. A job I love.
Living in the burbs, making 80-120k a year, household 150-200k, and be able to afford for my future kids the opportunities I never got. Who knows, maybe I could have been a world renown lacrosse or hockey player if I was exposed to different opportunities when I was younger. Maybe chess master of the world, who knows.
Ideal life? As in unattainable, I would live life as a musician and continue my education until I was satisfied with myself.
If I could have an ideal life it would fit this plan. Finish college and get a job. Nothing fancy just something in an office with a steady income and good people around me.
Build a house. I know exactly what kind it would be to. Its an eco friendly DOMED HOUSE. They have a lot of space and are cheap to have built. I think they are awesome. Domed House Just enjoy life. I'd surf reddit and go out and do stuff. My day to day wouldn't change much I just want something to call my own and the ability to support myself in the long term.
I'd have a wife that loved me unconditionally and a couple of sons that did the same. Wife (If there is such a thing) would be my soul mate ♥,fighting by my side and helping me along the way. Then I'd find the true nature of God and he'd accept my apology for being a bad person in my younger years. I'd also help to destroy the uprising of slaves today before I died, with absolute peace, joy and love in my heart. I'd want to live like a king while remembering that I am only a man who loves people but is too hurt in my younger years to show it. I'd want to live convincing people love one another. Consistent schedule every day, a close friend to live with me to remind me to do big important stuff (ie remember your doctor's appointment today) not take care of me, just help me keep my mind on track. A job where I dont deal with customers and I can work with my hands and be consistently doing something. In an area with a low tempo speed of life, in a small house that I can easily keep track of. I can understand wanting to raise children in the suburbs--safe streets and other kids and all that--but only to a point. Mostly because I absolutely loathe suburbs, especially the ones with rows upon rows of near-identical houses. It's nightmarish. I need space and nature; being surrounded by buildings all the time just makes me feel deeply unhappy.

What board game do you like the most?

I like playing board games, but I don't get much chance to do so. I like games that require skill or strategy, but you also need some random elements to even up the odds when you're playing with people of different skill levels. I mostly play Monopoly, Scrabble, Backgammon, occasionally Chess, but I also like other non-board games such as Kerplunk and Connect 4.

If you were a chess piece, which would you be and why?

In chess, each piece has a different value and most people want to be King👑 but I prefer to be a Knight. Coz, The KNIGHT is the only piece that can jump over other pieces including its own men. No Piece Can Move As a K N I G H T ♞ Can Move

Maybe I’m a horrible ugly monster. No one ever sticks around. What’s the point of anything if I’m nothing to everyone. Ppl only see me when I do something for them. Is that life? You’re nothing to everyone just some tool to be used? A chess piece to be played strategically for their benefit only?

My recommendation is live your own life. Try to not looking at other people. Only your family appreciates you and no one will appreciate you except your family.

What do you consider the simple pleasures in life?

Appreciating good mental and physical health. Not too long ago, I made the decision to change my life and address my addiction issues. I went through MONTHS of excruciating drug withdrawal in a desperate attempt to rescue myself from a path that I'm sure would have ultimately lead to my own self-destruction. My body took a long time to even begin to recover. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, but worst of all I truly thought I had lost my sanity and my ability to enjoy life. Sitting in the old canoe on a windless afternoon with a fishing rod in hand, not a worry in sight. Feeling the sun kissing my weathered face with warmth and love, Hearing the slow trickle of moths and dragonflies as they nuzzle the waters edge. The smell of willow, blueberries and labrador tea from the shore, enticing me. Suddenly, there is a twitch in the float, and with my heart pounding I pull up a majestic perch from the depths. With a swift and merciful blow to the head, I end its life, and then sit there with this beautiful, mysterious creature in hand; thanking it for the gift of food and asking it for forgiveness and understanding. The boggy smell of the fish in my palms as I row back to shore to get a small fire going; the incense-like smoke of spruce and alder permeating the little meadow. A jay sings from a nearby branch; curious and care-free. I cook my dinner over the embers on a simple stick, before I revel in the taste of nature itself; feeling the joy of being alive and self-sufficient... at least for this weekend. The sun soon reaches the tips of the trees, the golden rays painting a still portrait of peaceful solitude on the little mirrorlike lake. The slight scent of pine and heather. The silence.
Birdwatching. A cold beer on a hot day. Getting into the woods and lounging in the hammock. Fishing with my old man. A good book in a coffee shop when I have nothing pressing for the rest of the day.
Grappling. In particular Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. There's a familial camaraderie in the gym. Everyone helps each other learn and goes out of their way to ensure their partner's safety despite the focus being on pinning each other down and executing chokes, arm locks and leg locks. I'm an only child, but I imagine it is similar to what having a playfight with a brother would feel like, except you are both old enough and wise enough to keep it competitive and safe without anyone running off to mum crying. The sport also has this wonderful problem solving aspect. It is often referred to as human chess due to the tactical nature of the moves. It fascinates me and at the end of the day it is just two people rolling around on the ground in the most platonic way possible. Give it a go sometime.

Which country would you like to visit?

I’ll play a little defense here and pick Easter Island. The globe is about to become completely volatile in the next six months.
Being “away from it all” might be the wisest decision a person could make.
I’ll visit my buddies in Raps Nui National Park. It should be quiet other than the occasional ICBM’s passing overhead. No one will cut in line for seconds when I barbecue.
Maybe some aliens will drop in for a good game of chess.
