It’s time for everyone’s favorite game, “Chess tournament or Casino?”!!!! The game is simple, you get 1 point per question and you have to tell me if the prompt is the name of a casino, or a high-level chess tournament. Ready to play?

Casino
Actually called “Bois Forte” which when translated from French, is strong wood.


Casino
This one is in California and is also a tribal casino.


Casino
The tribal casinos just have the best names! I’ve already got big balls putting 3 in a row, but could I ever do 4?!!


Chess tournament
Nope. It sounded too much like a casino anyway so it had to be chess.


Chess Tournament
AKA the Champions Chess Tour which hosted multiple tournaments in 2020 and 2021


Casino
Another tribal one in California.


Chess tournament
Aptly named for the Californian city it was held in, this annual tournament ran through the 70s


Chess Tournament
If there’s one you know the answer to it’s this one. It’s even happening right now in January!


Casino
Add some bacon and this will be the perfect place to play bingo and slots


Chess Tournament
I can’t be bothered to wiki this one


Chess Tournament
You’ll have no idea where they hold this one…


And that’s the game! Let me know your score out of 11.

I got 6 out of 11. I had only heard of one of these. The rest were (un?)educated guesses.

BTW, I thought the Chicken Ranch was a brothel!

I got 7, mostly by guessing. I was sure about Morongo, and overly confident about Lone Pine but…
The casino in California is Twin Pine Casino. Great Scott!
