    Joshua: Shall we play a game?
    David Lightman: Oh!
    Jennifer Mack: I think it missed him.
    David Lightman: Yeah. Weird isn't it? Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War?
    Joshua: Wouldn't you prefer a good game of chess?

    So if it takes a long time for the computer to make a move does that mean you are a good chess player?

    Not sure, I think the longer it takes, the more moves it possibly has to go through to beat you. So maybe.

    That makes sense. A few of the times, the computer took a long time to make it's move. I thought maybe it was because of my master chess skillz, yo!

    I guess it was thinking of it's move, and mine. So basically, the computer was thinking for me and itself. Wow!

    Yeah, that's why theres 2 colors, representing both players.
     
  7. So, what, does it actually calculate EVERY convievable permutation of the pieces, or does it actually have a built in strategy?

    Damn cool, either way.

    Rock on

    I've found that computer chess games I've played play off your strategy. I've played computer chess games where I've just randomly moved pieces and the computer has done the same. Once I start using actual strategies (move out the king pawn, move out the knights) then the computer chess program reacts in kind.

    Mr. Liggett: Alright, Lightman. Maybe you can tell us who first suggested the idea of reproduction without sex.
    David Lightman: Um, your wife?
