If Chess Pieces Were People

January 23, 2021

FREE WRITING

46
If chess pieces were people these 3 things would happen:

1. Bribery. Someone would eventually pay someone on the other side to sabotage the team.

2. Eventually, one lowly pawn would finally figure out they should point their spears UP, preventing knights from jumping over them...

3. Why are they fighting in the first place? Both sides have bishops, indicating that they are somewhat of the Catholic Religion, and really, how much land could they be fighting over? It's a kingdom of 16 people...

    I finally tracked down the original of the series! This is hilarious and I love that you've inspired so many other people to continue it. This is what I love about WtW, y'know? Anyways. I was wondering the same thing as barelybear. How does this work? Would it be okay if I wrote one for Hungry Hungry Hippos? Thanks for starting this amazing chain!

    Woah this is such a cool idea! I’ve gotten so hooked and I HAVE to read them all omg XD

    How does this prompt series work? Can anyone join in and do one?
    It seems so cool and the ideas and seeing how each writer pulls it off is amazing!!

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA! This is the FUNNIEST this I have read in FOREVER! Can you write a piece solely about chess pieces and people? If you do, please send me a link. Also, did you draw inspiration from wizard chess pieces from Harry Otter? (did you see what I did there? Huh? Good, right? I'll leave now...

    Re: writing about writing about writing about writer's block is way funnier than what I did, but you can only write about writing about writing about writer's block once. :( Sadly. XD

    I wrote another part to this amazing Prompt series! Check it out:

    https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/189302/version/383013

    It's based on the game Guess Who, a less but still popular board game.

    Haha, XD! In Harry Potter the chess pieces are alive, and they’re constantly yelling suggestions and trying to save themselves. But, this is a really funny piece! I love the last paragraph!

    I really like the concept of this; just imagine if they would be aware that someone is moving them along too.
