    here's the lowdown. I'm planning on playing a game against someone from each country in the world, ideally against people of roughly my own rating level, I'm at about 1100-1200 and I need to find opponents, if you want to be a part of it and represent your country then volunteer here, just list your country and rating and if you're of a suitable level and from a country I haven't got to yet you'll get the game.

    Thanks.

    There are appx. 180 countries. You can play 6 simultaneous games.

    This world tour may be better named "Eternity Tour"

    I have realised this but it's something I would really like to do just for kicks as it were.

    you should subscribe then you can play as many games as you want. Ill play you, im from the UK (or england if you also want to play against someone from N.Ireland, Wales and Scotland). Im currently rated c.1350 but dont let that fool you, im actually about 1200 standard - just been lucky recently.

    Did you ever consider that these countries may want players a little better than 1100 representing them?

    My reasons for oding this tour are to improve my own game, maybe learn a bit of culture and ultimately to have some fun competitive games, as a rule that means palying against people of a similar ability... at least it did last time I checked.

    Not true.

    I can't play as many games as I want to. I simply have no time for it. And if I try I'll lose to much.

    Simply not true.

    I would be glad to represent Estonia, but my current provisional rating is about 200-300 above yours.

    Threre is a problem with this grand tour de world, I'm afraid.

    What do the flag represent? Country or nationality?

    An example: ItalyBoyBlue User 230640 playes under the italian flag, but hi's not italian, can't even speak italian. So if you play with him, do you play with USA or Italy?

    And what about these Antarcticans...?

    But the idea is great!

    I'll represent Belgium, currently 1280 though, but a lot of luck and some time outs were involved.
