Chess Titans!!!

Postby Darren » Fri Mar 05, 2010 11:40 am

Any chess players here?

I have always sucked at chess, but just lately started getting into it with a game called Chess Titans (which from what I read is a well respected chess game).

The game has 10 levels and I haved beaten the first 3. Am working on #4 now. This little blog is to see how I go beating it!

Some of my victories thus fare...

Woo hoo! Level 4 in the bag :banana:

I have gone from playing uber defensively to applying a more aggresive approach. At first I was just dumb aggressive with no real plan and got beaten quickly, but then I applied a bit more thinking/planning to it and things improved. Still of course maintaining a core defensive attitude as well.

I ASSUME a bit more aggressiveness is required to win at a higher level. Never read a book or been given advice, so this is all self taught :lol:

Woo Hoo I beat level 5 :banana: :y: :banana: :cheers:

Improved my game approach. Aggressive, defensive, very cautious. Try to knock out the enemies defense line and main pieces, while keeping my base defenses in good shape.

I think I am going to find level 6 VERY hard!

Well it seems level 6 is too much for my "instinctive" playing method. It has me stumped. I haven't been playing too often due to frustration :lol:. I think, at best, I could force a stalemate if I kept trying.

Simple facts are that I have reached a point here where, like serious chess players, I need to "study tactics"....
