Jake & I played chess this evening. We’ve been messing around with the computer chess game on the iMac for a while, so I thought he might be interested in moving real pieces around a real board.

It went well, all things considered. Jake found that the rules interfered with his fun, so he abandoned them halfway through the second game. It’s much easier to capture Papa’s pieces when you can pounce on them from across the board. Kasparov himself couldn’t defend against such an attack, so I don’t feel so bad about losing.

Maybe we’ll play again sometime.

(Jake insists on calling it "chest". Silly boy.)
