Brooklyn Castle premieres at South by Southwest

At a tent party after the screening, Justus played a simul. Photo taken from this review.

I play blitz with John Forte, co-executive producer of the film, former Fugee, and chess enthusiast.

My first chess teacher, Mike Feinstein, now coach of Canyon Vista Middle School, shows me the Feinstein Gambit: 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. c4 Nc6!?.

I am introduced to 3M chess. It's very interesting; chess on two fronts. It has a double knight that can separate at will. It's a shame the website doesn't have the rules.

3rd Millennium Chess would like to apologize for the lack of information on our website. Our website has been under construction and we are striving to always make 3rd Millennium Chess better. The rules of the 3rd Millennium Chess game have now been posted on our site along with a quick descriptive video. The rules are the same as regular chess other than the king line pieces may now move forward or backwards; the knights have the ability move in tandem and also have the ability to split at any time, which once the knight/knights split the half knights may then connect or occupy any space that another half section knight is on. We are thrilled that you had the chance to experience 3mchess and look forward to any and all of your comments. Thank you, from the staff of 3rd Millennium Chess. Please visit us at 3mchess.com

I supposedly met the guy (Shannon Gardner) who invented this thing when I was visiting the Chess Club in St. Louis. It was a very interesting version of the game indeed! Got to sign the thing as well after I beat him! Was this picture taken in St. Louis?
