This was the scene ten, maybe 15 minutes into our chess game. Toa was playing white. I was playing black.
I'll spare you the agony of trying to figure out what white pieces are missing from the board. I only captured two, a rook and a pawn, and I paid dearly for falling into the trap of taking those pieces.
I need to find some good "Chess for Dummies" books or something. This can't happen again.
