Okay So Shatranj

CALLBACKS: Independent Music James, We Are All Unique

The board positions, as well as James and Becky’s respective moves, are all possible in a standard game of Shatranj. Props to Chessvariants.org for supplying the info I needed to construct the state of a game in progress.

For the curious, a close-up of the board from panel 2 is available in the SC Facebook page’s photo album.

FUN FACT: Sketch Comedy will be updated on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Be sure to check it on your smartphone at the dinner table while all your uncles are talking about sports.

  1. I am torn. I am kind of excited that I got to read a new SC before going to bed. But! I am also sad that now I won’t have a new one to read in the morning when I get up. (In my mind it’s still Monday right now) Maybe I’ll forget the new comic in my sleep so I can experience it again!

  2. The best part is that IMJ just got totally schooled.

    You may take our elephant. But you will never take… OUR SUPERIOR KNOWLEDGE OF OLD OBSCURE CHESS VARIANTS THAT WE WERE INTO BEFORE THEY BECAME MAINSTREAM.
