    I never saw the Fight Club movie, but the chess version is still funny.

    I did happen to notice that they oriented the board the wrong way. I assume these guys can play chess, since they made the movie, and they used chess notation in the movie. So was the mistake with the board orientation a "spoof within a spoof", aimed at the non-chess playing public that invariably makes this mistake in movies and commercials?

    youre not going to believe this, but one year, the highschool yearbook ran a pic of the chess club, and they had the board set up wrong as well..

    If I had a nickel for everytime I saw the board set up wrong I'd be quite wealthy. If they're not allowed to talk about chess club how'd they get all those members? sign language?
