What openings do you guys use? I'm prone to improvising wildly after playing the queens gambit or the sicilian defense for the first few moves.

I pretty much do the same. I think that for beginners the opening isn't as important as the midgame/endgame tactics.
I like Caro-Kann and Ruy Lopez too.

Yep, have both Codex: White and Codex: Black; Black used to be better due to their "castle" ability to make up for White's higher initiative ratings, but 3rd Ed fucked that up by giving White the Castle ability.

For me, chess is like sex. I know the basics by heart, I can even pull couple tricks that professionals use. I'm can keep my concentration in short rushed sessions and can last reasonably well in prolonged matches where quite often each position lasts for 15 or more minutes before even slightest change. But it has been a while since I actually had a partner to do it with...

I was better than most people in the chess club in middle school and junior high, but when I got into high school there were a lot of people much better than I was. I am still pretty bad at chess, but I enjoy it when I'm might stand a small chance at winning (note, not "when I'm winning" but more of a "we both don't know any real strategies").

I have a friend who's really good at chess, but no one wants to play with him anymore because he always destroys us.

If you're going to play it, a few notes:

1. Moves in the Past are *very* overpowered right now, because at the end of a Round, they propagate throughout the whole board. What's worse, you can basically get two turns in a row in the Past, making defense there nearly impossible. The whole rest of the board becomes almost irrelevant.

I'll make these changes in the next revision, but right now what I'd suggest is that moving in the Past forces you to give up your *entire* two-move segment.
>>
Time Cube Chess guy 06/11/14(Wed)04:32 UTC+1 No.32703850 Report

>>32703811
Oh, almost forgot

2. Keep a counter (I recommend a sheet of paper) on any unit you move or capture until the end of the round. This makes bookkeeping for the Ripple Effect MUCH easier. Without it, it's kind of a clusterfuck.

The Ripple Effect only applies to pieces you've moved since the last Ripple. If a piece wasn't moved in the Past or any of the Presents, it doesn't get updated in the Future.

And since you don't have seven sets of specially marked chessmen lying around, just print a few copies of this, cut them out, and glue/tape them to pennies or something.

I'd try Qg3, Kh7, Qg7. But it of course depends on black's moves.
Alternatively Kh7 so the black knight takes ours keeping him busy, Qg3, Qg7. But the idea is the same.
