This is a quote from Star Wars: The Musical… No, only joking! No, the original, and dare I say it, 2nd best film of the bunch… It comes from the section of the film where the heroes are on the Millennium Falcon on their way to Princess Laia’s home world, and R2D2 is playing Chewbacca at ‘chess’… If you haven’t seen the film, the green ball’s behind the blue.
So, Chess Night (AKA Let the Wookie Win) @CoFWD got off to a flier… late, but a flier. James, Freddie and myself waiting with three boards at the ready… While James tied up some loss ends, someone suggested Freddie and I play three games simultaneously. So we did… Three games at onse: mind blowing stuff. so much so, we forgot whose move it was half way through. We called results on two and concentrated on one.
James and Josh shared an epic battle before Freddie took on the young, talented Barhia. Meanwhile Helen held out against David for most of the evening… a very creditable performance from someone who described themselves as a novice. Well done Helen!
James and I rounded the evening off with another tough struggle… fortunately for me, I won!
The next Chess Evening “Let the Wookie Win” will be on the 6th April… @CoFWD
