Chess game

I think nearly everyone has a chess game at home, so I thought, why not playing chess through the internet ? We can write down our movements (even if we don't know the official way, we can still write : pawn E3-E4).
So, anyone wants to play against me ?
(To avoid misunderstandings, here is what the board should look like at the beginning of the match

)

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Well, what color do you want ?

if you can't decide, let's play rock-scissor-paper, the winner will be white.
(open up the spoiler only after you answered, I'll give 3 answers, in case of 2 draws.)

Spoiler:
paper
scissors
paper

Why don't you just play over ChessCube or PlayChess? That's what LBAWinOwns and I did when we played a while back.

I was taught to play chess by Lego people.
I have not improved much since then, so generally I give up or ask that that we play suicide chess, which is much more fun!

Lol, you meant to play it here, in a thread? that'll take weeks/months.

I definitely thought you were talking about playing it online somewhere.

Well then, I pass my turn, if anyone else wants to play with Polaris go on!

Chess is a slow as fuck game; here you'll have plenty of time to plan your moves. Makes more sense than sitting there playing in a single sitting.

... right.

So if I lose the game, everyone's gonna be able to trace the exact moment I did the wrong move, and it'd be unforgivable because I had all the time in the world to think on it - no way I'll expose myself to that.

Seriously, the hardest part is visualizing the board with all positions of each piece. Unless Polaris plans to upload an updated image on every move.

well you could either setup a physical board your end to mirror the game or upload an image, either is simple.

Yes, I thought we could set up a board at home and redo each move on it. I had this idea because one of my teacher said he played chess that way, the two players sent letters to eachother. He said that he had to stop because he always was thinking of the game.

Well I haven't ever played a match of correspondence chess before(though that's probably because the few times I play chess these days it's just some standard blitz).

That said, anything in the pursuit of chess is good in my books, so Nf3(yes, I did just make myself white)

C4.

Btw, do you mind if I use regular algerbraic notation or do you want me to explain the whole move like you?

I just looked up how that notation works, it's fine, if I don't get your move, I'll ask.
