Blogger Chess

OTB Chess. Correspondence Chess. E-mail Chess. Internet Chess. Apparently there are never enough ways to play a game of chess.

Now there's Blogger Chess - a game contested by two different bloggers using a group blog to transmit moves to each other. This particular example seems interesting since neither blogger's posting interest is chess-related; both are political bloggers (of the blue state variety). Playing White is N. Todd Pritsky of Dohiyi Mir while Black will be manned by Guy Andrew Hall of Rook's Rant. They are using the Open Source Politics blog to prosecute the game.

Here is Pritsky's announcement of the game on Dohiyi Mir, and his first move at Open Source Politics.
