Friday Freenis, Chess Edition

I'm no good at chess. Too impatient. It is fun enough to play, so long as I'm challenging a fellow bumbler.

One thing I do like about chess, though, is the way the knights move about the squares with their L-shaped hopping. It must light up regions of my brain that enjoy seeking patterns in the world.

Troyis, an addictive puzzle game you can play for free online--although for only 15 minutes a day without ponying up some duckets for a full version--taps into this pattern-loving part of my brain. How about you? MG?
