• Games have a spirit - the ones of Chess and Draughts have been implemented in one form or another by almost every culture in the world.
  • We're not entirely serious all the time, yet we may bring up that:

    • Having thoughts is not the same as thinking.
    • Opinions are difficult because they're too damn easy.
    • It's hard to recognise tunnel vision if you're inside one.
    • José Raúl Capablanca and Bobby Fischer were great players, not great inventors.
    • Forcing an idea to work will not earn you the gratitude of the result.
    • Draughts players are hooked on opposition - they'll oppose anything.
    • It's easy to make a small fortune with abstract games, just start with a big one.
    • Inventors of abstract games are all the same, but some more so than others.
    • Life is fundamentally futile and great games are a tribute to precisely that.
