Around holidays and special times of the year, we'll be holding specially themed games,
so if you've got style and about an hour and a half to spare,
join us for some cool prizes and pictures.

Rules & Guidelines
  • Do not sign up for a piece if you're not sure you'll be available for the scheduled time, you have a short attention span, or your internet connection disconnects often. You can sign up to be a stand-in though.
  • Only guild members can sign up to be King.
  • You do not need to know the rules of chess to participate.
  • The pieces are first-come first-serve. However, you can still sign up as a stand-in if no other pieces interest you, and the person who signed up might not show.
  • During our scheduled games, if you want to participate, you MUST dress in the team color or theme you signed up for.
  • Show up at 5-15 minutes early so we can set up the board and assign stand-ins and begin the match on time. If you do not show up on time, you may lose your position.
  • Do not use backgrounds or heavily cluttered avatars to be a piece. It obstructs view of the board and sometimes other players.
  • Do not walk onto the chess board during the game if you're not a piece.
  • Listen to your King to keep the game moving smoothly. He will give the orders for the moves.
  • Only move when your King tells you to, otherwise it's a good idea to kneel to prevent your avatar from moving on accident.
  • If you feel the need to chat, please do so in an area where the text will not obstruct view of the board. (Such as at the top of the side lines, or below the lower walls)
  • However, if someone asks you to be quiet, please do so because it's most likely because you are distracting the other players or the King.
  • We will attempt to have stand-ins available if you have to go AFK for any reason. Don't leave the computer without letting us know so that we can fill your space while you're gone and keep the game moving.
  • If a nuisance or noob comes along to disrupt the game, don't feed the troll with reactions, simply burn him alive with the Ignore Fireballs.
  • The kings will say "END" to show when their turn is over.
  • During scheduled matches, if you think you'll be stalked by disruptive Gaians, change your preferences to hide your online status.

What do you mean? It's still there... But I thought putting all English in the title was nice, too.

That's hardly fair - you've switched the title, and now I look like a loon... gonk
