At a local Renaissance Fair, they play it with real people, and real fights.

Hi, Maybe we should have a competition to see who can correctly name all the lens which are on the chess board.

Quote from: Lensrentals
The complete 32 piece set includes 70-200 f/2.8 pawns, 600mm f/4 Kings and 500mm f4 Queens, 400mm f/2.8 Bishops, 300mm f/2.8 Knights, and 200mm f/2.0 Rooks in black (Nikon) and white (Canon).

I win. Or is it cheating copying their site?

meanwhile, how much fatter does the nikon 200/2.0 look compared to the canon, or is it just the angle?
Too much gear, too little space.

The work rookie has been around for a long time, its origins are from the word recruit.  It was used to talked about first season athletes because they were just recruited.  It is still most commonly used in sports talk, but can still refer to a noob (newbie) in just about anything.

Thanks for the explanation. I guess the word is not used here, or it's me who never noticed.

That's because His Chubbiness is there with the lens hood on.

OK, here is a competition.... If we close an eye for the incorrect King/Queen setup, it's actually Nikon to move, and it has a forced mate in 3 moves !!! The one who find it first wins the chess set + T-shirt !

Perverse = demented . . . not perverted :D

I thought you were going for a runthrough of the history-of-the-world chess scene  ;D

Assuming A1 is in the lower left corner seen in the picture... (should be the other way, but never mind)

1. Nikon moves queen to A5, checks Canon King
Canon's only option is to move B7 pawn to B6 and block the way

2. Nikon moves bishop from E3 to kill the pawn at B6, checks.
Canon's only option is to kill the bishop at B6 using pawn at A7

3. Nikon queen takes the pawn at B6 and check mates

Looking forward to the T-shirt! (and the chess set)

epsiloneri wins the t-shirt and the set !!

To get your price you will need to carry all the pieces in your backpack in one go :)  Hope you have a good chiropractor

NB: it's cooler to capture the pawn with the Queen at move 2 and mating with the Bishop !
