As I started to put together a comprehensive guide to games in Second Life I began to realize that a really big element was missing: Chess! There must be dozens of Chess games all over SL! Now that I think about it, I’m way overdue on covering this topic.
It took me a bit longer than one might expect to find a decent Chess club. There are plenty of chess games all over SL, but they’re usually in dance clubs filled with people uninterested in a quiet game. Eventally I found a club with a variety of 2d and 3d Chess sets, as well as educational tools to help you become a player. I sat down and pondered a Chess puzzle that they had on the wall.
It was then that I remembered something: I totally suck at Chess. I have no idea what I’m doing here. Hang on, let me go look at the Sudoku stuff… they have Sudoku HUDs, no-prim Sudoku textures, Sudoku scripts, and … well you get the picture.
So I go and take a look at this Sudoku puzzle…
Hmmm… nope, I suck at Sudoku too. Now that I think of it, I’ve never won a game of either Chess or Sudoku in my life. Six year olds have kicked my butt (which is saying something considering Sudoku is one-player). Ah, but in the corner, the SL Chess and Sudoku Club have shown compassion to those of us who feel just a bit less manly after being shown to be idiots.
Ah boxing! Takes away the pain… ironically…
