Getto Chess

048c2c20.jpgI just saw a flyer for a group of people playing Getto Chess and I had to go check out their website. Every page is better than the one before it and at this point I can’t decide what is more amusing. The fact that ‘getto’ should actually be spelled ‘ghetto’? The guestbook? The action shots? Or the claims that this game was invented in the 90’s here in LA. In case you don’t recognize it this game is also known as GoMoku Narabe (aka stones) and has been around for quite a bit longer than the 90’s. It’s also been a staple cell phone game for a good many years, but who cares about those minor details.
