"Bughouse-Blitz-20 Chess"

Speed chess format
20 boards at tables at different locations
4 players a team, moving around in a circle
Industrial music

If you throw in Colin Murray and Elaine Paige I think Challenge TV would buy it.
And Indy would appear on it.

Chess on Tv with a decent knowledgeable commentator is one of the greatest joys in life.

FYP

Much as I love the game, watching it is painful.

I was just about to post a link to chess boxing. I saw it on the BBC documentary how to win at chess. An interesting watch, even if you're not that into the game.

Very Happy
