 Fox Malkovich
I remember doing one of these against katar a while back. It was great fun. I was wondering if anyone would be up for new one? It's like a correspondence match where both players document their thoughts simultaneously (you're not allowed to read the other player's thoughts until after the game, though). The technicalities: No engine/literature/etc., no time restriction.

I hope someone's up for it. I'll start off with 1. e4.

Is this a Fox against the world game? We might need our own world thread, with anti Fox software at the door.

Nope, just a 1v1 correspondence style game.

I'm still waiting for a reply. I mean, 1. e4 is a pretty good as far as first moves are concerned, but not winning or anything, especially against a patzer like me. Whatever you play in response, you'll probably get away with it. Probably!

@katar I'd be honored to have a rematch, but I gather you're busy atm?

it might be fun to have each Black move played by a different player, rotating around 2 or 3 or 4 players etc. - my schedule is very spotty atm but I could chime in every few days for a move if other people would contribute too. Of course that means the opening will careen all over the place but it could be interesting.

Seeing as nobody wants to play, I'd be okay with that. Could be an interesting experiment, at the very least.

I hope this turns into a Fox vs. Kamus 1v1 game.

Okay- Mr Fox has revealed himself to be a material-grabbing pawny-pincher. I have little choice but to burn the bridges and bring on the fearsome Icelandic Gambit. Let terror be your constant companion! :twisted:

3...e6!?
