We're just doing the final setup for the #guildhallgamesfest this morning, hope to see some of you, and make a lot of new friends!

Das Vereinsturnier hat 2023 mit 50 Teilnehmern erfreulicherweise wieder eine Rekordbeteiligung zu verzeichnen. Auch von der Spielstärke her ist es mit acht Spielern über 1900 gut besetzt. #Göttingen #Schach

Another exceptional find at @ALMkonstanz: a medieval trictrac board, made of beech and maple. Trictrac is a French board game similar to backgammon. The board was found in a latrine of a monastery in Freiburg. Although game playing was forbidden in monasteries, finds...1/2

Liebe Schachfreunde,

nach (fast) „Partieloser Coronazeit“ endlich wieder ernsthafte Turnierpartien.

In der B-Gruppe der DSAM am Freitag als Rang-Nr 43 von 51 gestartet, hatte ich gute und weniger gute Phasen.

@AlisonFisk A lovely excuse to remember a detour to Uig a few years ago. Don't think anyone knows *precisely* where they were found, but thought to be in the dunes somewhere around here. Stunning location, even on a grey day.

The Lewis Chessmen for #MedievalMonday. Characterful chess pieces with wonderfully expressive eyes, from a large gaming hoard discovered on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1831. Carved from walrus ivory c. 1150-1200. 📷 my own.

This is wrong. There is a #chess variant for four players mentioned in #medieval #Indian sources but it is not the original design. Chess has ever been a two players game. #ChessHistory #GamesHistory #HistoryOfGames

It appears that #Friendica's @Twitter connector stopped its service over night; probably due to @elonmusk's anti third party app policy. This will deteriorate my user experience on #Twitter massively. If the #WordPress autoposter disappears, too, it's in fact bye bye, Twitter.

Thousands of years ago, students learnt mathematics and chance by playing the Royal Game of Ur. 🎲

It's the perfect tool for the job! It's fun and relies heavily on probability.

For teachers, we gathered a list of free resources for #teaching with the game below! 🧵

Obwohl ich mich nicht einmal besonders für Schachhistorie interessiere, finde ich es schade, dass Jahr für Jahr so viel Vereinszeitungen, Bulletins, etc. verlorengehen.
Die Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz wollte meine alten Partieformulare auch nicht haben...

Professor @jaegerthomas2 bringt in diesem hervorragenden Artikel die gefährliche Denkweise von @Bundeskanzler #Scholz auf den Punkt:

„Russland muss einsehen…“. Die Einsicht soll den Krieg beenden, nicht die gegen Russland 🇷🇺 aufgebotenen Machtmittel.“

Eben, dieses "allein durch Kommunikation" gibt es bei der Koalition nicht. Das ist nach meiner Meinung Oppositionspropaganda.
Nein! Das ist wesentliche Leitlinie der deutschen Rußlandpoltik seit Fall des eisernen Vorhangs. Prof. Jäger, ein Fachmann für solche Fragen, beschreibt es in dem Artikel doch!

Ancient evidence of a sore loser at board-games? 😂

About 1,000 years ago, this beautifully carved ‘tables’ game was smashed up with an axe and thrown into Gloucester Castle’s rubbish pit!😳 Excavated in 1983, it’s the world’s oldest surviving complete tables set.
