Anyone collect chess pieces? Neither do I, but this caught my eye. Amber, the erstwhile choice for pipe stems.

I play every once in awhile, although I'm not particularly good. One resource to check out is Chess.com, allows you to play against other players in real time, offers tournaments, keeps track of your rank, teaches tactics, drills, openings, videos and lessons. I find it pretty helpful because I'm much more visual when learning chess. I've found it hard to learn from the shorthand commonly seen in books.

Glad to find this revived thread!

I like the idea of playing against humans online. By that I mean that every time I have tried against the computer, even on novice, it kicks my a$$.
