Life is like a chess game

Posted on at

Chess-nuts by Max Fleischer 1932, a Betty Boop cartoon film about the game of chess.

This animated American film shows a live action chess game, which becomes chaotic. Betty Boop is playing the black queen and Bimbo the white king is the great hero and must come to her rescue. So please have fun with chess-nuts and have a look to the next chapters.


Here you'll find some quotes from famous people:


Benjamin Franklin: "Life is a kind of chess."


Lelouch Lamperouge: "Life is like a game of chess, changing with each move."

Charles Buxton: "In life, as in chess, one’s own pawns block one’s way. A man’s
very wealth, ease, leisure, children, books, which should help him to win, more often checkmate him."

David Bronstein: "In chess, as in life, opportunity strikes but once."


Garry Kasparov: "I, like many others, see in chess a remarkably accurate model of human life with its daily struggles and ups and downs." 


Garry Kasparov: "Botvinnik tried to take the mystery out of chess, always relating it to situations in ordinary life. He used to call chess a typical inexact problem similar to those which people are always having to solve in everyday life."

Savielly Tartakower: "In chess as in life, the best play is being performed."


Vassily Smyslov: "In chess, as in life, a man is his own most dangerous opponent."


Jose Raúl Capablanca: "Chess is more than just a game, is an intellectual fun that has something a lot of art and science, is also a means of social and intellectual approach."


Boris Spassky: "Chess is like life."


Bobby Fischer: "Chess is life."


If you say that chess is like life, you must not forget that in real life you also need a bit of luck. In the beginning around the year 1030, players played with pieces in combination with dice. Today people in various countries play Raindropchess. This game offers a perfect balance between tactic and chance.
