Top Ten!

Top 10 things chess players might say to their opponents

Start with something basic:

1. "Good game"
2. "Check"/"checkmate"
3. "Draw?"
4. "I adjust"
5. "Hello"

Add a little misfortune:

6. "You can't do that" (for illegal moves)
7. "Excuse're stepping on my new shoes."

And finish off with the extreme cases:

8. "Be very, very afraid..."
9. "You are getting sleepy...very, very sleepy..."
(the day hypnotists play chess - or the day chess players become hypnotists)

Or not...

10. Nothing...???
(actually more common than some of the other ones above)

More top ten coming up this spring/summer :D
