This, plus a lucite “plaque” and a telescope. Or a travel fishing set.
Rated game 2. What a wild fight – white captured 20 stones, and black 21. The fast pace of the game (5 minutes for 25 moves) keeps things interesting.
Result: victory by 4.5 points.
I am trying to establish my IGS rank, which requires 20 rated games. Here is the first. Move 31 felt awkward just as I placed the stone. The alternative was S4-S5-S3-R5-P2.
Result: victory (by forfeit on time).
A trivial and short-lived marketing experiment? I just don’t get it. It’s not a movie, people; it’s a book.
Witness: Simon & Schuster book trailers and Knopf Doubleday’s attempts. The KD trailers are better than S&S – they have better music, and don’t try to make you think it’s a movie. Because it’s not a movie. It’s a book.
