  • When chess calculating should you say the notation in your head such as Nf3 c4 Bxd3 or just move the pieces in your head?

    Best answer: You've just asked a very complex question. Mostly, I would say ''move the pieces in your head'', but that's not quite it either. You're looking for positions that are SIGNIFICANT.

    Best answer: You've just asked a very complex question. Mostly, I would say ''move the pieces in your head'', but that's not quite it either.

    You're looking for positions that are SIGNIFICANT.
    Chess is practically infinite. (Technically, it's finite, but the numbers are just mind-boggling. On a human scale, you might as well say infinite).

    The study of tactics, positional play, endgames, etc... are meant to give you shortcuts you can use. If you can learn key patterns and position, you save yourself a lot of calculation. When looking at a position, from a tactical point of view, you're trying to figure out what's relevant and what's not.

    In a tournament, does a stalemate earn each player half a point just like a ‘draw by agreement’?

  • What are some good board games/ card games for parties?

    Best answer: For parties, games to consider are... * Cards Against Humanity (Mature) -- One game that can work reasonably with with a large group, but everybody needs to have a fairly open mind & don't mine potentially offensive content (hence the mature note). * Secret Hitler (Semi-Mature) / The Resistance -- For... show more
    Best answer: For parties, games to consider are...

    * Cards Against Humanity (Mature) -- One game that can work reasonably with with a large group, but everybody needs to have a fairly open mind & don't mine potentially offensive content (hence the mature note).

    * Secret Hitler (Semi-Mature) / The Resistance -- For 5-10 players, it's an asymmetric game for secret information & competing objectives. Interesting to see who can keep a secret from others.

    * Tsuro / Tsuro of the Seas -- Up to 8 players, it's a fairly quick-playing game where players lay tiles on the board & travel the path they're on while trying to avoid running into other players OR flying off the board. Tsuro of the Seas adds a few extra elements to make things a little more challenging.

    * Qwirkle -- Up to 4 players, it's an easy-to-learn domino-style game where play a line of tiles that match by color OR by shape to score points from a pool of 108 titles (3 sets of 6 colors & 6 shapes). Players earn bonus points by completing a line (1 shape of every color OR 1 color of every shape) to get a "qwirkle".

    * Fluxx (various themes) -- Fluxx is a good "pick up" game as players can freely jump in at any time (just have them grab 3 cards & then comply with the rules). Fluxx is chaotic game where order is EVERYTHING, as players can change the rules & the objective on the fly. You can potentially screw other players if you play your cards in the right order.

    * Munchkin -- While good for around 4 - 6 players, it's a bit pick-up friendly as well as you're trying to get your character to Lv 10 first WHILE preventing others from reaching it.


    This isn't an exhaustive list, but I hope this does provide some games to enjoy.

  • What happens in monopoly when the last two players go bankrupt at the same time?

    Best answer: That is a statistical anomaly, since it means players aren't paying attention to the game AND BOTH PLAYERS MUST OWE FUNDS TO THE BANK for this happen... Upon reflection of the rules, it may seem possible but highly improbable... but the order to debt resolution would make it impossible for BOTH players to go... show more
    Best answer: That is a statistical anomaly, since it means players aren't paying attention to the game AND BOTH PLAYERS MUST OWE FUNDS TO THE BANK for this happen... Upon reflection of the rules, it may seem possible but highly improbable... but the order to debt resolution would make it impossible for BOTH players to go bankrupt at the EXACT same time.


    *** FIRST THE RELEVANT RULES ***

    In order to properly declare bankruptcy, a player must have a debt exceeds all liquidable assets (which includes the mortgage values for all properties NOT YET mortgaged)... which would likely require a notepad & pencil as well as a calculator to properly tally (as the mortgage state of all properties are frozen at the time the debt is incurred when declaring bankruptcy). HOWEVER, players may elect to declare bankruptcy without doing the calculations if they wish, even if they could cover the debt in question.

    While players can ATTEMPT to skip out on paying rent to another player (as the rules states rent debts become uncollectable after 2 players have started their turn... In a 4-player game, any rent Player A owes become uncollectable once Player C starts their turn by rolling their dice). HOWEVER, Bank debts MUST BE PAID IMMEDIATELY & cannot be evaded.


    *** NEXT, THE SCENARIO ***

    Here's how the scenario would play out where BOTH players are in dire straights...
    * All properties are owned by all players & split relatively evenly between them.
    * Player A has no buildings, all properties are mortgaged & practically no money.
    * Player B has no buildings, only 1 property unmortgaged & practically no money.

    How things happen would...

    1) Player A lands on the only property Player B can collect rent on that exceeds their on-hand funds... but Player A doesn't mention it & Player B doesn't notice it.

    2) Player B lands on a space (without passing GO) that incurs a debt to the Bank (like Jail Fine, Income Tax, or something from Community Chest... like school tax or hospital bill), triggering their Bankruptcy Evaluation.

    3) Player B notices Player A is on their unmortgaged property & requests the rent owed to them. This would trigger the Bankruptcy Evaluation for Player A.


    *** THE RESOLUTION ***

    The debt resolution would happen as such.

    Player A's debt (to Player B) would have to be resolved FIRST, as that was originally occurred BEFORE Player B's debt occurred... although Player B did not immediately request it's resolution (& was still within the 2-turn limit to request it since Player B has yet to finish their turn, preventing Player A from starting their turn to close that window). Since Player A doesn't have the funds or any liquidable assets to settle the debt, they would have to declare Bankruptcy to Player B.

    As Player A would be eliminated from the game at that time, Player B would effectively become the winner being the last player standing... but let's play this out from here (for the sake of completion)....


    After Player B receives all the assets of Player A, which incurs EXTRA DEBT to the bank as Player A would have to pay the 10% interest on each mortgaged property they received. Considering that Player B is already in an Bankruptcy Evaluation, would be go bankrupt in the process (as they would have to mortgage their only remaining property to cover some of the interest payments, but wouldn't be able to cover everything).

    While both players would go bankrupt on the same turn, Player B would practically have an "Empty Win" since they're only winning by the coincidence of the resolution of events.
