brof's comments:
Chess is life! Magnus is a pro chess player. These are his weird adventures in infinite chess space! Solve funny chess puzzles and read a comic on chess and life! The full version will get new Episodes once a week. I will try to put them out every Monday (don't know if the review process will mess things up). The upcoming LITE version will get an update once in a while.

If you have a funny chess story, let me know! I will try to make a comic out of it and you will be credited!

Episodes 1-8!
