What are your thoughts about having a dedicated MtG page on the wiki with all that information? It seems like it would fall in the same "leisure" vein as skiing, ramen, onsen, etc. You never know who or how many might come out of the woodwork because of it. --SeanC (talk) 14:08, 7 May 2018 (JST)

I thought about doing this initially when I did the first back of LGS reviews, I felt like it might be a bit too niche? While I guess I do never know what will come of it, and maybe I'll work on it if I get some time.--AJSensei (talk) 13:33, 11 May 2018 (JST)

Just in case you're not aware, resignation in chess notation can be indicated by writing "resign" in your column. Just want you to be aware... --SeanC (talk) 15:40, 30 October 2017 (JST)

In traditional chess notation, pawn movement is marked only by the destination square, and piece movement is marked with a capital letter - N, B, R, Q, or K - followed by the destination square (assuming no ambiguity). Your two moves would be notated as e4 and Nf3 respectively. If you'd like, I can convert your move history into that notation.
Alternatively, if you're curious, this Wikipedia article pretty exhaustively covers it! --SeanC (talk) 13:05, 27 September 2017 (JST)

Figured I'd save you the trouble and post it here myself ;) --SeanC (talk) 16:44, 22 September 2017 (JST)
Pick a side if you want to play!

Thanks!

Nice Power Rangers reference!
There were a few times where I think you may have miscounted how many pieces were attacking/protecting certain squares. Like move 15 where you sacrificed the pawn to get my queen out of position, but the ensuing exchange of captures still came out in my favor, and ultimately just resulted in losing a pawn for nothing.
Also, when your opponent has piece advantage, it's generally disadvantageous for you to do one-for-one piece trades. Your opponent may try to initiate them, so I recommend trying to guard against them whenever possible. (The same is generally true about pawns, as well, but they should be considered a separate category. i.e. Pawn advantage doesn't necessarily translate into piece advantage, and vice versa: piece advantage doesn't necessarily translate into pawn advantage.)
Thank you for the game!--SeanC (talk) 11:38, 1 November 2017 (JST)

Yeaaaah I definitely made several mistakes at the start. Thanks for the game!
