Games of Chess

 February, 28 2006

Stories in which the game of chess plays an important part...


Although I'm rubbish at chess, it does provide a good backbone for a story. Who else should be playing Faramir?

Rebecca wrote: I cannot imagine how hard it would be to describe a game between Faramir and Amrothos, but I imagine it would be interesting, perhaps as an examination of ways that Amrothos is brilliant and yet in some ways unable to anticipate the consequences of his designs.

Eee, Amrothos playing chess would be scary to write! They do have a game in The Lost, but it's mainly an excuse to have something to look at rather than each other while they have a conversation about emotions. Like you say, I can imagine Amrothos becoming so distracted by the elegance of the design of one of his strategies that he doesn't notice a tiny but fatal flaw in its basic premise.
