About Amaurote

"In these great trials harden your spirits, collect all your forces, and when you have defended the country, liberate it." (Alexander Kerensky, 1917)

Once accidentally played an open game in 1992. A one minute silence is held every August 2nd in the village green in the pouring rain before a statue of George Lansbury to commemorate this loss. Since this evil time all moves are made in consultation with the Amenities (Swimming Pool and Dog Faeces Recycling) and Footpaths Sub-Committee of Doledrum-upon-Sea, a body entirely constituted by septuagenarian councillors who know absolutely nothing about chess, and who as revisionist Christian Socialists believe that the taking of chess pieces is against Mosaic Law. As a result of this, my pieces will selflessly present themselves for martyrdom and enter into Elysium en prise, hanging and without visible apostolic support. Victorious opponents will be automatically allocated a proforma forgiveness email via Hotmail. Accidentally defeated opponents will be sent a handwritten note in green ink and heavy underlining urgently requesting them to twin their town with Doledrum-upon-Sea.
