    If you go to my archives, and order your games by last move, you'll be able to see quite clearly your winning/losing streak.

    Nice ideas but Zumdahl's suggestion sounds more exciting!

    Off topic for this thread, but, in chess, "zugzwang" means "being at a disadvantage from being required to move" - it's your turn and you wish you could pass, because whatever piece you move, your position becomes worse. You generally run into this in endgames. Do not confuse zugzwang with stalemate!

    If you post a question on this in the Chess forum, you should get lots of explanations with interesting examples.

    just for fun:
    this is a german word: Zug=move, zwang=forced
    there are some other German words in English. Let me know if you know others:
    Kindergarden/Kindergarten
    Blitzkrieg
    Wunderkind

    Schadenfreude (enjoyment of another's misfortune)
    Zeitgeist (spirit of the time/age)

    There seems to be a pattern here: compound nouns, not too long, giving succinct expression to a useful concept.

    "Sehenswurdigkeit" ("thing worth seeing", i.e. tourist attraction / place of interest) is a useful concept, but it seems the word is too long...
