Yes, it's amazing how incredibly unpopular chess is. Nobody plays it at all. Nobody buys the millions of chess sets produced each year, goes to the hundreds of tournamants around North America every year, or reads any of the several periodical magazines devoted to the game.Originally Posted by JT.
Why would anyone ever play this game that has simply been phenomenally unpopular for hundreds of years now?
I mean, if I DON'T LIKE IT, it must not be popular...right?
Geez...virtually every console dating back the Atari 2600 has released a stand alone chess game. No, they don't outsell Zeldas and Halos, but Chess stands as the most popular board game of all time...
