    Post your longest completed games. Those are usually the most interesting. (You can find it easily by going to archived games and sorting by move.)

    I think there's some relation between style of play and longest game.

    Also on Uchess, I once had a game go to 105 or so moves because he didn't know how to put me in mate with just a king and rook.

    The longest games are "usually the most interesting"?? Where's the connection? If you have a book of games, do you scan the contents and look for the one with the most moves? I usually play the shortest ones first. In fact there are many collections of short games. I don't recall a collection of long games. If it's on endgames (like Capablanca"s best) the writer usually gives you a diagram or a quick run through of the beginning so you don't get bored to death before the conclusion.

    I know you would get bored looking at any of my games long or short.

    For me, the longest games tend to be the most boring. They're usually long because someone isn't willing to resign a hopelessly lost position. Granted, I know many top-level games can continue on well past 50 moves, but those that go into 80+ seem to often be because the opponent wants to see if they can squeeze out a stalemate.

    My most exciting games tend to be around 30 moves or so.

    Anyway, Game 2776746 is my longest game at 76 moves, but that's mostly because I botched much of the endgame.
