Know what? I am glad you all enjoyed the magical additions or whatever to the game but its not going to ever be what the lessons or the tourney are about every month. And no way are we going to be playing some weird version that crushes the pieces. What a waste?
For me anyway, its about more than just sitting there, its not something you can do while multitasking, not in any tourney setting, whatever you do on your own time is up to you but its not Chess. Chess in that setting, its focus, its determination, it's skill. Why the hell do you need magic to make that better. It's already better. Magic can't do everything. More to the point it shouldn't do everything
But look, If you want to crush the pieces, get someone magic to replicate them and hope it doesn't screw up. But you're not crushing any of the sets we have. There's not an endless supply.
