Hello;

Why is the game starting at move 3 — I (We) can’t make any real judgement without seeing the whole game! My game player won’t show the moves because they are not in sequence. Please post the correct score!

Generally I like little short miniature games — they have a charm kind of like eating potato chips,

How to improve in a chess middlegame?

Question by Apple II: How to improve in a chess middlegame?
I’m an intermidiate player in chess and I find that most of my mistakes/ times where I lose in a game come from the middlegame. After moving my peices out trying to control the middle of the board, I’m not really sure what to do and doing the same thing every time won’t always work. What are some ways to get better at a chess middlegame other than just trading off peices?
I also find myself playing from behind alot and i’ve lost my queen 3 times (without exchanging it for another peice) and came back and won, so I need to go into the endgame WINNING not from behind all the time.

Never forget that it is always good to trade off pieces IF you have an advatage.

In the middlegame, push to attack your opponent’s king. It is basically what the middlegame is for. Usually, if you take the offensive, you will get a trade of pieces, and rarely will you lose them. THEN, you trade off pieces,

What’s the best strategy game on the PC?

Question by ?????: What’s the best strategy game on the PC?
I am tired of spending money on a game then deleting it a month later. I want something that will take a while to learn, and longer to get tired of, and options for after that if possible. Something with so many choices that even the programmers don’t know the perfect strategy for it.

No puzzle games please. And I do not really like real-time games like shooters.

Answer by manualsearch
Strategy games? Command and Conquer: Generals or Starcraft. Those are your two real choices for games that take a while to learn, and are hard to get tired of.
