Very good, now you just need to print it out, cut it into pieces exactly 13mm square and photograph a gibbon trying to put it back together.
A sure winner of the Turner Prize

White resigns, but conceptualising the game as a creative interaction between the players, feels happier. He can also regard it as an ironic comment on the lack of aesthetics in normal patterns of chess thinking, where the beauty or harmoniousness of the game within the universe is undervalued in the final result.

This is what consoles me every time I lose as well. You captured my queen with your pawn!? But look at the ugly structure created! The weak squres! Yes, you may achieve victory, but at what cost? :)

The Immortal Overprotection Game may also entertain you.
