Finally – it’s here – Chess manga – Age of Caissa. Over a year in prep, this was a huge creative effort of a small but focused team of artists, writers, scientists, philosophers (yes, really) and what we end up with is not just a manga (available free online or bought and shipped) but a vast, fully-fledged world – set in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian age, where the world is ruled by chess-playing robots and – well, let us not spoil it. Launching with my new website, you will find there not just the manga but also concept art, short stories, and other material from this universe. I’m sure anyone with any interest in chess – or AI, philosophy of mind, computability, graphic novels or hard sci-fi will find this to be an enjoyable read.
(4/4) On another note I could do with some tips on how to get a good sleep. It seems like I am a fully fledged insomniac. 😵💫
I was in bed at 1am last night but didn't even manage to get 1 minutes sleep after tossing and turning all night. Been awake for about 40 hours now. 😱

(3/4) I missed one very likely obvious winning move.
Here I played Bg2? but I should just play Qh6!
For some reason I had missed ...Qxh6 Bxh6 ...Nxc3 a3! Which is game over.
In the end I lost 😔 after Johann played excellently.
