Quiz the twenty-sixth: A game of chess (Part one)

I’ve never been any good at chess. I know the basic rules, but I don’t think I’ve ever won a game against someone who really knows how to play. Or against a computer, even with the difficulty set at the easiest level. I doubt I could last very long against some of these masters.

      You riot in false modesty Chandler! I’m impressed you got The Beast Must Die. There’s a movie that’s not very well known these days. And I really have to take my hat off to you for getting Demon Seed from that picture. I thought that was going to be nearly impossible.

    WordPress recommends your The Beast Must Die write-up right on this very page. ( ´´ิ౪´ิ` )

    5. Beckett (tooootal guess. The pieces look like the Lewis chessmen, but I just can’t place it.)
    9. Sherlock Holmes 2
    15. Ravenous
    22. The Hateful Eight

      This is scary, Sheba. Three of these were just pictures of the chessboard! I didn’t even know what Lewis chessmen were. And I don’t know how you got Ravenous. That’s an obscure movie and the picture wasn’t much help. There are now 20 out of 25 done for this quiz. I’m going to have to ramp up the level of difficulty!
