Chess is better by sooooooooooooo much.

The real question is Chess vs. Go.

Chess. And I've actually played by mail...in the early 90's when 17 people knew what E-mail was.

I like checkers because it's easier and less complicated, you can just kind of pick up and play.

Chess. I've only played a short game of checkers, and I'm not too adept at the rules.

If you know chess, you should be able to figure out checkers in all of about a minute.

I watched my parents play chess when I was around 4, so I picked it up then. Chess seems very natural to me. So I wouldn't sweat learning it if you have to Pirate. Checkers the rules confused me on the other hand, but I didn't pay it too much attention--can't you have double stacks or something in checkers? Pretty confusing. Chess your different figures just have certain moves, and that's the main part to remember.

No, there is no debate as to which one us guys "like better." Everyone knows (for the most part) which one they like better.

I learned the basics when I was younger thanks to a little game called Battle Chess. Been wanting to pick it up and really learn it but just don't have the motivation or anyone that would actually want to play it. :P

It is a debate of which is better, nothing to do with you. I tend to find women like checkers a lot more than chess. Interesting

That's not what you laid out in the original post. Which one members of OT prefer and which one is better are not the same thing.

I use to play chess on the MSN site, under games, with random people. In the end I would usually rather watch a movie or play a videogame though.

There may be a debate, it's just that the debate that it exists isn't about the question you asked. That's like saying "The great debate. What color is your shirt?".
