A Chess King Without A Cross Is Neutral: 8/22/2017 18:40:32

Without the cross, it'll be neutral, which will attract more people to play chess. Not everyone will feel welcome by seeing a cross on it. The most liberal way is to remove the cross from it.

That sounds dumb. Why would I be offended because there is a cross on my chess piece?

A king is royal, isn't it logical for it to have a royal cross on top? I don't see how that isnt neutral? It's not an uncommon way to show royalty in Europe.

It's not like the cross is a needed part of chess, it doesn't influence the game at all. I've played versions of chess where the kings had crosses, crowns, were nintento action figures (Bowser and Mario), ...

And before the Trump fanhood come here neonazi this hole thread, may I remind you that Chess is a game invented in Persia and brought to Europe by the Arabs.

chess actually came from India, and it was much different to today's European-chess rules (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaturanga) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shatranj).

^Oh true that, the french wikipedia page wasn't very clear on the origin, probably because of the constant rule-changing making it hard to determine when it really became chess. Perhaps we have to distinguish modern chess from original chess? Hard to say.

Yeah? I am an atheist who believes it's all false and I don't care. It's just a cross, something that has been used to the point where it really has no more meaning. If they take it off? Who cares? Just not something to make a deal out of imo.

That cross has a religious meaning, not everyone wants it on their chess piece.

So, that's why a chess king without the cross on it is neutral towards all people.

I'd probably quit any chess website that took a cross off of their pieces just for the reason of making it "neutral"

Would you like to play a game of chess, Squiggles?

If the chess piece would have a crescent on its top, then opinions would certainly change, without doubt.

the kind of folk who make a fuss about such things are the kind of folk who should stay away from chess anyway.

The cross is a catholic symbol, it has nothing to do with chess.
