A noble sacrifice in support of the system of checks and balances.

It should go without saying that the confiscated chess equipment was later retrieved from the local pawn shop, but unfortunately I just said it.

Time to sacrifice the horse for the castle

It is only a matter of time before they play dominoes and all hell breaks out.

Evil chess, gateway vice to drugs and gambling.

It could've been worse, could've been checkers. Just a small step from that to three card monte.

Those chess terrorists! What will they think of next?

I say send in Seal Team 6!!!


First Lawn Darts... now this.

I was in SF ten years ago, and I walked past this venue. I have to say, the participants were sketchier than the stereotype of Chess players, but otherwise, nothing illegal seemed to be happening. Now, back here, we'd deal with it by instituting a check-and-frisk policy.

Will we have no Constitutional rights left?

Friends, we've got trouble. And that starts with "T". And that rhymes with "C". And that stands for Chess.

... and now only criminals play chess...
