The Game by HansPeterKolb The Game by HansPeterKolb
Chess, the royal game. In this case it is nature who plays this game. She is also man's mirror. Just as this game will some time be over mankind will one day come to en end - if the danger is not averted in time.
From the position of the pieces it is apparent that the king is under imminent danger from the black queen. There seems almost no avoiding the inevitable because the mighty rook, barely conspicuous, is lurking in the background. Perhaps the golden knight might be able to avert the peril at the last minute?

This looks like a more real version of No Game No Life, an anime that started airing recently. Super cool!

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORK ((im so sorry))
