If you're at a loose end one evening and wish to pass some time, set up a chessboard and simply do the following, either alone or with the aid of a friend:

Play just 3 moves into a game (each side). Put the pieces back onto their starting squares again and play another 3 moves into a different game. Repeat until you have made all the possible combinations of moves, reaching all positions.

If you find that doesn't kill sufficient time, try it again using 4 moves...
