Introduction to Burmese Chess

In this thread, I shall introduce everyone to yet another chess game that has originated outside the Western world. This time, I shall talk about sittuyin, a chess game found in Myanmar (formerly Burma), so it may sometimes be called Burmese chess.

Introduction to Persian Chess

Here I am again with a thread talking about how to play a specific variant of chess outside the Western world. This time, I shall talk about shatranj, which is essentially Persian chess. It existed long ago in Persia, the Arab world, and beyond.

Here's how you play...

Introduction to Thai Chess

Here is yet another variant of chess hailing from another part of the world: makruk, also known as Thai chess. This one is quite similar to Western chess, such that my thread describing this game may be quicker than my other introductory threads on chess variants.

Introduction to Japanese Chess

OK, time for another thread explaining the rules of a variant form of chess. This time, I shall talk about Japanese chess, also known as shogi. I've already discussed Chinese and Korean chess, but brace yourself. Japanese chess is quite unique.

Read on to see why...

I have won a game of Korean chess, beating the computer on the app's highest difficulty level. The two screenshots here show the second-to-last board state and the last board state, where one blue chariot traps the red general as another blue chariot guards the same row. I feel good about this. 馃檪

The #NFCChampionship game was a nailbiter, ending with the San Francisco #49ers erasing a 17-point deficit to beat the Detroit #Lions by a score of 34-31.

Give credit to the Lions for playing their heart out and making this game tough for the 49ers. The Lions will be back in the playoffs again. 馃檪

On an app for the Chinese game of go, I have beaten the computer opponent on the hardest difficulty level. As shown in the screenshot below, I, the player with the black pieces, narrowly captured more territory than my opponent playing white, after excluding the black pieces at risk for capture. 馃檪

The California State Capitol in Sacramento is a beautiful place to visit. It is a building where the public can view display cases dedicated to the state's 58 counties, plus other cool features. There is also stuff outdoors, around the building. If you are a proud Californian, be sure to stop by. 馃檪

The Golden State Warriors are known for regular use of the three-point shot, with accuracy, as part of its arsenal. Here, in tonight's game against the Brooklyn Nets, Klay Thompson sinks a three-pointer after getting a pass from Chris Paul. Klay is one of the Splash Brothers for a reason. 馃弨 馃檪

San Francisco 49ers home game stadium tradition:

Whenever the 49ers get another 1st down, the PA announcer will announce, "...for another 49errrrrrrrrrrrrrr 1ST DOWN!" Then the fans do a grunting chant: "Aahh oohh! Aahh oohh! Aahh Oohh!" (I read somewhere that it's inspired by the movie 300.) 馃檪

Whenever the opponent is on a 3rd down, the PA announcer says, "This... is THIRRRRRRRRRRD DOOWWWNNNNNN!" And the fans get excited and hyped up for what will hopefully be solid 49ers defense to prevent the opponent from converting to a 1st down. 馃張 馃檪

Contrary to popular belief, sitting in a sporting event venue seat furthest from the playing field does not really diminish the spectator experience. If anything, it shows the whole view of the game without requiring head turns.

For example, look at this upper-level seat view at Levi's Stadium. 馃檪

Spoutible's Auto-Generated Thread Summary function powered by artificial intellgence is close to perfect.

As an Asian American, I've been associated with the model minority myth. Early in my life, it was something I thought was good. These days, it bothers me. Understanding why it is problematic requires looking at it with a critical eye.

Allow me to provide a brief explanation, in my own words.

One cool thing about Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA, is that it also includes the 49ers Museum. For an admission price of $49, one can see exhibits related to the team's history, plus their five Super Bowl trophies and rings.

Seriously, do any other NFL stadiums have team museums like this? 馃檪

My favorite old-time classic Disney character is Goofy.

He's funny because he's clumsy. I like him in the Disney animated shorts that parody instructional videos, satirize sports, and present everyday life. I also like him in recent works, like Goof Troop.

And I have a Goofy plush doll. 馃

Today, I spent a bit of my afternoon in Alameda, CA, at the Pacific Pinball Museum, which displays pinball machines from the 1930s (!) to today and has modified nearly all of them to allow unlimited free play for visitors.

This brings back childhood memories, because I loved pinball as a kid. 馃檪

Not far from Mount Shasta in Northern California is Lake Siskiyou, a beautiful body of water that is just perfect for boating, fishing, and water play, plus camping nearby.

In the last photo, Mt. Shasta is in the distance, though partly obscured by clouds (darn weather). Oh well. 馃彏鉀扳榿锔 馃檪

I've won a game of Chinese chess in an app's hardest difficulty level (Professional)!

As shown below, I captured all of the opponent's pieces and left the black commander stuck by two red chariots. A stalemate is a draw in Western chess but a loss for the stalemated player in Chinese chess. 馃檪

Ooooh, a giveaway!

As I entered Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, I received an Oakland A's-Captain Marvel bobblehead. Yes, a Marvel superhero dressed in the team's green and gold.

I never buy sporting event tickets based on what the giveaways are. But if I happen to get one, I gladly accept it. 馃檪

After numerous tries, I won a game of chess against the chess app's AI at the hardest difficulty level. Level 12 of 12 really doesn't fuck around.

Here's a video I took two days ago.

In the Santa Barbara Zoo's aviary, I got to see up close a blue-crowned pigeon, a big bird native to Northern New Guinea. Never before have I been within such close vicinity to a bird species from elsewhere in the world. It's such a peaceful creature, too. 馃檪

Wow! State Street in downtown Santa Barbara, CA, is a beautiful sprawling place. Roughly ten blocks of mostly pedestrian-only (since the pandemic) traffic passing by all sorts of shops and restaurants.

The four pics here are just a sample. They don't do justice compared to being there yourself. 馃檪
