Derby entry comments for Derby #432: Non-Electronic Games

Comments for individual derby entries are placed in this thread.


For those wondering if this defense exists…Yes, it exists! (although slightly different, of course, no hippos involved! :))

Hippopotamus defense is an unorthodox defense that can be played easily against almost any of white´s opening moves. It´s relatively simple to learn and at the same time strong, solid, flexible and dynamic.
It was occasionally played in the 20th century at master levels but earned its popularity thanks to Boris Spassky, who played this set twice in his world championship match. The commentators dubbed this defense as “Hippopotamus”.

Hope you like it!

Very well executed! I was hoping someone would go for this reference.

Wow, Awesome design!

Hope you came well armed! :smiley:

Inspired from my childhood movie Jumanji. Hope you like it :slight_smile:

First derby entry in a while. The thought made me chuckle. Hope you enjoy.

You might have a problem for having it on multiple shirt blanks. I’d resub it quick with just the red one. Sometimes shirts get rejected otherwise.

Sometimes it feels like everybody is walking all over you. :frowning:
