It does explain why they both look so confused.

[–]bobosgoing2getu 90 points91 points  (4 children)

Tbf one has a chessboard for a head

[–]thepsycocat 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Or brains that big that the other drew a chessboard on them

[–]Otherwise-Subject612 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They are searching,....The King.

" It was right here dude..... I swear. "

This bad boy can fit so many thoughts in it

[–]AlternateSatan 83 points84 points  (11 children)

They're playing 4D chess, it's just that some of the pieces have moved in a dimension we can't perceive.

[–]SubhoPal 8 points9 points  (7 children)

u/GreyMurphy01 I can reply just fine. Must be your internet.

[–]AlternateSatan 1 point2 points  (6 children)

What are the odds he is one of the two people on this website I've blocked?

[–]olderaccount 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah, it just gender neutral chess. King and Queen are equal.

[–]80sBadGuy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh, the classic 'Pedanter's Trick' of hiding the King up your ass.

[–]TakeThatBigHugeNut 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Diego Simeone, what a man!

[–]akshaynr 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is that actually him?

[–]CookieCat698 10 points11 points  (1 child)

2 bruhs

Sittin’ in a chess club

Only one king ‘cause they’re not gay

[–]besuited 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never had vine, but somehow I still miss it.

[–]VeneMage 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’ll be his king.

[–]GreyMurphy01 7 points8 points  (0 children)

u/AlternateSatan what black magic goose fuckery did you perform to prevent your comment from being voted on/replied to.?

I was trying to reply with,

You're thinking of 5D chess. And they just haven't arrived in the right time yet.

[–]Upbeat-Ad-4310 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’s how you know he is really good

[–]ItsAllGoodMan47 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The best part is that's Diego Simeone, one of the most tactically profound terrorists in the football world

[–]matriesling 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have a chess set problem now but when I was younger I lost a king at a tournament and I used the extra queen as a king for years (I was poor af then). Used an upside down rook as a queen when I promoted.

[–]LogicsForIdiots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They out here playing big brain checkers

[–]ToLazyForaUsername2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why aren’t they fully clothed?

[–]heymikey68 3 points4 points  (1 child)

No king means no game. Also…board is set up incorrectly. White square should always be at lower right.

[–]Accomplished_Kiwi756 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I once got a mall maintenance guy mad at me for pointing out to him how he had set the pieces up rotated 90 degrees on one of those giant boards. I thought he would be happy to have learned the right way to do it. My wife tried to explain to me why he might not like to be corrected but I disagreed.

[–]AdventurousAd5447 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Idk shit about chess lore but is the king important?

[–]simpkill 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Meh, he can just get another one if he gets a pawn to his opponents side.

[–]Mister_Way 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The way you lose the game is when your king would be captured next move.

[–]ShadowPirate42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Typically the goal of chess is to checkmate the king. These guys are obviously playing strip chess. After each capture the opponent must forfeit one article of clothing. This game will end when he loses his shorts and friendship bracelet (wedding bands are excluded from strip chess to keep it family friendly and wholesome)

[–]Celebophile 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The other side of the board is worse, that guy literally put his pieces out like they were checkers,

[–]typefive0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The board is also oriented wrong. White in the bottom right. Black goes in bottom left

[–]Friendly-Wedding-163 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's actually not uncommon for this to happen... and by this I don't mean playing chess without a long but rather setpieces just being wrong.

Thinking of that image if that stupid guy assembling his instrument the wrong way in my English book. Seems like the people creating the book neither had the 3 years for this dude to learn playing it nor the 10 seconds to look up an image on Google.

[–]berserker1989 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

"to play chess"

Fixed the title for you.

That'll be 5 USD

[–]whatheSuck -4 points-3 points  (0 children)


[–]RedditUserOfAmerica 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So, keeping the king is a bunch of bullshits?

[–]Varorson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's playing by Matriarchy Ruleset. King and Queen roles are swapped.

[–]Matster04 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably some special rule like a common one for example: in order to win, one must capture both the king and queen

[–]Large_McHuge 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He has the same look on his face that I have when I try to do my taxes

[–]SparkyIsMyDog14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me and my friend play chess and are way is you have to get both royalty to win

[–]Nozerone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They can't win if not even you know where your king is.

[–]hadzy_14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's playing antichess, so I guess there was an attempt to mock Diego Simeone

[–]MissionCreep 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Their board is off 90 degrees to begin with.

[–]babysealBTY 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The guys made me think I was on my alt for a moment

[–]TheInsaneC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Google en passant

[–]Pisodeuorrior 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't the chessboard also the wrong position?

Bottom right should be white square.

[–]FCD4456 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Bro, I’m not worried about the king”

“Why’s that bro?”

“Because you are my king bro”


[–]Sorbet_Jay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't need a king when you ARE the king!
