Nearly a year ago, there was a bizarre and grotesque murder not too far from us. Two guys were playing chess and, it seems, an argument over a move ensued which resulted in the killing of one of the players.
Subsequent reports disclosed some especially disturbing details about the killing which you can read here, if you have the stomach for it
Obviously this guy was very seriously deranged, and shouldn't have been out at all... never mind playing chess. But when you consider the rather stuffy image of the game, it's difficult to reconcile a row over which way the knight moves (or some such) ending up in a horrible bloodbath.
Myself, I think I will stick to Grand Theft Auto... just in case.
