    Now, get this, this Friday, because I'm so popular, I'll be playing against 3 people at once (not blindfolded this time ) at chess.

    Does anyone try this, are you any good, any tips?

    i think that would be fun although if your playing someone who is rated just as high as you i'd spend more time on that game. what are their ratings ne ways?

    The most I've done at once is twenty. Three at once I do quite a bit, but usually no more than one is close to my level.

    I think the key for me at least is if they are not as good player it is not very hard. I did play 3 at once where two of the players were rated very close to me and this was very hard for me. I managed to win all three but after I was very tired and even a little stressed feeling. I can play pepole not as good thought like this all day and it is no problem.

    Nah, this is just a casual game with a few friends of mine, no ratings.
    No time limit strictly speaking, but I'll hopefully try to keep the games under 20/30 minutes.

    If anyone would like to know: I rarely play OTB, I have no rating OTB, but I hope to change this whenever possible.
