General Discussion / Re: THE INFAMOUS CAMBODIAN CHESS IS REAL!!!

Hey! We want to know all about this. As of the publication of our book, all reports of this game had been traced back to a single source -- no confirmation or independent corroboration. A good bit of evidence would rewrite the story of this game.

Thanks for really looking into our book. Yes, Murray has been the go-to book for all of us, lacking any comprehensive updates for the past hundred years. We hope this book will open up the field to many more game enthusiasts and researchers.

Yes ... I'll have to get back to you when I'm on my home computer -- I can cut and paste and/or attach it from my files.
Thanks --

Thanks for the comments. The best way to get the book is from the site AWorldofChess.com ($45 includes shipping in the U.S.; add $22 for other countries) (comes signed by the authors).
But if you want an electronic copy, you can get a very good price from Google Books. They have it as $14.57  :o  (marked down from $26.99)

I'm one of the authors of A World of Chess: Its Development and Variations through Centuries and Civilization.
I wanted to make myself available for discussion of the many subjects brought up in the book.

If you're interested in the book, the best place to get it is http://AWorldofChess.com.
You can also get a less expensive digital version on Google Books
