  1. Btw, where do you play this? Searched for Los Alamos chess but did not find much :/Edit: I like the layout in your video. Lichess? Or similar to lichess?

  2. This chess variant was the first chess-like game played by a computer (in 1956). It was played in the Los Alamos Laboratory, where they were designing nuclear weapons.

  3. 28:08 white has a cool tactic. QxN, allowing black to play QxQ. White follows up with NxPawn, forking black's K and Q. Winning 1 piece + 1 pawn in the end ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    Thanks for a great video! Nice way to get introduced to this game ๐Ÿ˜Š
