I generally don't play chess much, but I happened to like this game since it gave me more opprotunities to screw up than in a normal chess game, and it felt like I was learning more about Chess faster than playing a normal game...<br> It also feels more laid back whenever I play it. In games of normal chess, my opponent always seems to be competitive and have a lot of pride in his ability. He also tends to gloat a lot when he wins, which gets on my nerves, because it's rare for me to play chess (partly due to this reason). I generally only play once or twice a year now, but it never was more than once or twice a month.<br> Since this game is a variant, and everyone I've ever played was just as new as me, the games feel more relaxed.<br> Though I honestley don't understand how someone can get so worked up and competitive in a game of chess, and then turn down a game of Street Fighter III...
