THE TITLE GAVE IT AWAY.

CHILD'S PLAY! (I AM SURE CHILDREN STILL PLAY CHESS. AT LEAST WE DID WHEN I WAS A CHILD.)

Nice. My first thought was "War" played with a deck of cards but the clues didn't quite fit. Chess was the obvious answer after that.

Great teaser!

I think I am too impatient for these teasers. I play a ridiculous amount of chess and I quickly gave up on the riddle and looked at the answer. Then I said 'Of Course!!!' Loved it, even if I was impatient.

If you have ever played MOTAS you should know this one. I love to play chess so I knew it anyway. Thanks for the super teaser.

I love chess, that's what I said it was, didn't say knight.. O well. Fun teaser, a little easy, but still great if you don't want your brain to hurt too much!!!

Good one I knew chess, but had reach way back for the Knight. Haven't played in 50 years or so

Recognized chess ,but I did not get the knight . I thought it was really well written and i look forward to more of your teasers.

This was a well written teaser, but it was too easy for me. I knew it had to do with chess right off the bat. Maybe you could make your next teaser(s) a little harder? But like I said, it was a great teaser! Just easy.

Nice puzzle though!

I am surprised at how many people play chess or at least know something about it. It is once again a teaser that I know nothing about and I know I am not alone, so it was not fun for me. Sorry!
