Some kind of mental torture because I was dumb enough to read an article about the Gestapo.Eh, I think this is a valid reason for a SWAT response. It was an armed standoff with someone who may not be stable.
darth_badger: I can understand the gun coming out if you are playing spades in the hood. But chess?
bdub77: I bet someone invoked the en passant rule.I've gotten in so many fistfights over that rule, you wouldn't believe. I remember it like it was yesterday. 1996. Semifinals of the Greater Lafayette Regional Tournament of Champions. Winner goes to State Finals, then Nationals. Then...Worlds.Guy thought he could just pass his pawn by me. Boom. En passant. He disagreed. Tournament director was nowhere to be found, as usual. The argument grew heated. Next thing I knew, my opponent was asking to take it outside. How many times had I done this? Ten? Twenty?Now I'm not a big guy, and this guy easily weighed 280 and was pretty muscular, but he was kind of slow. A guy like that, you go for his knees. One quick strike and he was down on one knee in pain. I followed it up with a kick to his chin and next thing you know I was on top of the guy. He didn't know what hit him. I was in a fury. F*cking en passant. Minutes later, I could see the fight draining from him, but he still wouldn't submit. Finally the tournament director came outside and ruled. "En passant! En passant!" I remember gently letting his head down. I was covered in blood, but the nightmare was over.I cried a lot that night. The cops arrived and ruled it was self defense. They knew. They'd seen this happen before in the tournament, just the year before. That guy had pulled a knife on his opponent, and it ended badly. The cops had to take him down.My opponent survived. I don't know what happened to him, but I'm told he still lives with his parents, and has some emotional issues still. I'm honestly not sure if that was my fault or not, but I'm sure he sometimes looks up the sky and asks God, Why?
Oldiron_79: Should have played Monopoly, the cops wouldn't have showed up unless you rolled doubles to many times
Wade_Wilson: I've seen people go full Walter Sobchak over the definition of "Free Parking" alone.
JohnCarter: Maybe the suspect was with SMERsh

Sock Ruh Tease: Pawns get capped quick... unless you're a smart-ass pawn.
