In 1977, Andimeshk Iran, I came in Second Place to Mark Price from Sacramento CA. We had a school tornament to find the best Smess player. This preceded the Chess tornament to which I also won second place to MP. It was a great game to play and everybody in my school wanted to play it. It was as exiting as chess but alot more fun. For me Smess brings back memories of some of the best days of my life in Iran before the Revolution.
