It's to bring the next World Chess Championship to Vegas and have the players play on a giant chessboard with half-naked showgirls as the chess pieces.

Well, I think it's a good idea. I don't know if it will make any money.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Why half naked?

Maybe because the venue can't sell alcohol if they were fully naked?

But as good as this idea is, I'll go you one better.

Chess is far too slow and cerebral. Make it a checkers contest.

All that jumping would be fun. Plus, imagine what the procedure would be for kinging....

Showgirls? Even the kings? Sounds kinda girly to me.

How about Tic-Tac-Toe with the aforementioned showgirls as described? Mary, Mary, quite contrary.... (LOL.)

Why "half" naked? Why not "paint on clothes" ?

Admin note: removed link to www.djteddybear.com/images/nearly_naked.jpgAdmin note: removed image www.djteddybear.com/images/nearly_naked_small.jpg Admin note: removed link to www.djteddybear.com/images/naked_backs.jpgAdmin note: removed image www.djteddybear.com/images/naked_backs_small.jpg

FYI: From a distance, they appear to be wearing skin-tight costumes. When you get closer, you realize it's paint and think they are naked. Only when you get very close do you realize they are wearing G-strings and pasties that were also painted.

For the record, I think this would be a great bar type game, but also agree that checkers is the way to go. Jumping a teaser to the kinds of positions that Kinging would require!

I envy the guy who paints them.

Sports Illustrated doesn't bother with the G-string and pasties for their painted-on swimsuits. And Wiz, their lead painter has long been Joanne Gair. I have the book "In the Paint", and the work is beautifully done. (Another passive-voice clause, to allude to another thread.)
