Quiz: e2-e4
 
Yeah - chess puzzles, along with mazes and sliders, are not the most popular thing. But to celebrate the start of the World Championship, here's the collection of black/white boards and pieces.

Rules: Two guesses per round.

Don't you read posts around here?

For Pete's sake, zobraks, that's 8 = eight more days! When was the last time a quiz took 8 - eight(!) days to finish?

It's not about 8 days, it's about another quiz (with pictures) going down the drain.
Then again, maybe it's worth it. Attachment 3571

Fien 05-12-2012 08:50 AM

Come on! You could just as well say that every single post is going down the drain. :P No way! :)

EDIT: Quizmasters can repost quiz pictures.
