Hi.

I guess the meta move would be for one to realise it's going to be hell at a later stage and start guessing random moves in places you already have the move green (i.e. fully confirmed).

Hehe.

Yes, I should have done exactly that. 1 f3 Nf6 2 f4 g6 3 Nf3 Bg7 4 e4 d6 5 Be2 0-0 would have sorted through quite a few.

Or perhaps even 1 e4 g5 2 f4 gxf4 3 Be2 f3 4 Bd3 Bh6 5 h3 Bg5 Wink

Wait. If black plays Bg5 does it show as yellow even if only white plays it at some point? No right. If that was in fact the case a whole new level of thinking would be required. Then you can use black moves to figure out what white does etc. Very deep.

I think for me in round three (only lacking white's fifth) 1.e3 2.Be2 3.Bd3 4.f3 5.f4 would have been a strong guess and if I had been more skillful I think I could have gotten a few of these already included in rounds one or two and consequently have more space to put in alternate move guesses in round three.

Have a nice day.

Hahaha. Almost same for me. Spent R3-6 guessing only about white's fifth. Didn't get it either Grin

Are they this evil normally?

Have a nice day.

I think I have a rough idea, because of White's 4th move. I imagine it's in your book - perhaps Chapter 3?

I started off the same as you, and was very confused after two attempts until I remembered the date.


But can you guess my third guess? Smiley

Really? I'm colourblind as well and don't have any problems. Maybe we have different types.

I am pretty obsessed with Chessle, although it's sort of unsatisfying to me in a way that the probable best strategy is to guess some nonsense in round 1, e.g. 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.g3 g6 4.Nf3 Nf6 5.c4 c6. That hits most of the major openings in some way or another and sets you up for a strong round 2.  Cheesy
