Round Robin

We like to play games around here, but the disadvantage of age is hard on the younger ones.

So we’ve been playing a lot of round-robin chess.  We set up the game by the stairs, so everyone passes it about a hundred times a day.

The checker here indicates that it’s black’s turn. Once Moriah has moved for black, she’ll move the checker to brown, and the next player will play for brown.

Playing round robin removes your ability to play a long, elaborate strategy, since sometimes you’re playing for black and sometimes for brown, but this way we are all playing, and no one is upset at the end.
