You should play some dwarf fortress, its a game that is all about losing. There are so many stupid ways in wich you can lose its even funny. You can even lose out of the complications arising out having too much cats in your fortress (Its called "catsplosion")

The catch-phrase of the game is "losing is fun" =)

We have chess on this site. I'm more than happy to enable it with the permission of Robert. I'd have to actually gain the permission to do so but we do have Chess installed.



Sounds awesome! Many thanks to you and Robert. Smile

I mean that I'm interested in having the chess option turned on. As far as connect 4 is concerned, you can't beat me, for I am The Great Fast!

What does that mean? We take turns?

I thought it was a game where we take turns dropping little circle pieces (that looks like checker pieces) into slots at the top of a stand up board-looking gizmo. The pieces drop. bla bla. Ya get four in a row and you win. Well, not you if you're playin' me, but you get the picture.

I think he thought that you were referring to your speed when you said, "I am The Great Fast". And he was noting that speed has nothing to do with the game, since it's turn-based. (which isn't necessarily true since you can do a timed connect 4, I guess!)

Oh. I see. I'm still not gonna lose. Well, at least that's what I kept telling a fourteen year old girl (a friend's daughter) the other day when I lost. Very Happy

I will win, making me a winner; you will lose, making you a loser. Connect 4 and I will make you want to destroy all Connect 4s after/if we play.

I'm actually a Connect 4 champion.

That's me on the right, and I beat that poor girl every single time - with a smile on my face.

It might not be right.
It might be a sin.
But you can bet your ass,
I'm gonna win.

Those who have heard me say that before, well, there it is again.

I read in a book one time that we should never forfeit a game. If you find yourself in a losing hopeless situation, you should stick it out and play to the end, for no matter how small the chance, there is always the possibility (remote as it may be) that your opponent might fall dead of a heart attack rendering you a victory by default.

Besides, we should never flick over the king to signify surrender, for a king knocked over represents death, and we should never allow a king to suffer the indignity of death. That is why we only capture the king in checkmate. In the end, he is still alive.

At the end of the game, after I've captured all my opponent's pieces, I place them in an internment camp, and from there I commit a small-scale genocide, king included. I burn or melt the pieces, depending on what they're made of, and if I can't burn or melt them, I break them.

The upside for my opponent is that they can't lose twice to me. A potential downside for my opponent would be that if they owned the chess set, they now only have half a set. But hey, they took the risk of facing me, not my fault.
