Chess Variant Quotations: Asimov. Quote on chess variants from a book of I. Asimov.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Asimov also gives an entire chess game, in words. <p>In his third autobiography (published posthumously in 1994) he writes that he was just about the world's worst chess player - while he knew all the moves, he couldn't beat anybody. he just played mostly random moves - hre thought the problem was he did not have the patience to plan (but perhaps he could not mentally manipulate images well) <p>His first autobiography was published in two separate volumes around 1980 and they were not as good in any way as his third one (written about 1990) <p>I think I once read where that game was taken from. It was a real game.
