Great message board!!! Actually this board helped me decide to spend March in AC....good job!!!!
Now I've learned to bring sunscreen, DEET, and a swimsuit then do nothing but relax. Out of curiousity how common is it to spend an afternoon sipping on a belikan while playing chess? Is it worth bringing a chess board?

Okie, I have seen several people playing Chess at Fidos on a quiet Sunday afternoon looking out over the ocean sipping beers. It looked heavenly. If you've got room - bring your set. Perhaps someone reading this board knows if establishments have sets to borrow while you're there.

Hi Okie Chris,

I will be returning with three friends to AC from March 13-20. I am bringing down a Trivia Pursuit Board Game, so we can play at FIDO's..while sipping on Belikins. A way of salvaging/stimulating some brain cells. smile

Last time I went down, Fido's had backgammon, checkers, connect four, and yahtzee board games that you could borrow from the bar. I am planning however to leave the Trivia Pursuit at Fido's for others to enjoy....and make additional room for souvenirs.

I hope this helps with your decision. smile

Take care. Cheers.
I'm returning to San Pedro soon...about 2 weeks away!!! Can't wait!

Come back to san pedro in June we will play a game of chess. If I focus well i can play a decent game. I've always loved the Sicilian defense ! First i get me opponents drunk on 101 proof rum, and i just sip strong coffee. It works pretty to good, unless it is one old salt. Best-wishes, Mel .........

Okie Chris, will you be there from the 1st - 5th? My husband plays chess at least every Tuesday and will be missing it while we're gone! He'd love to get in a few games!! He usually brings a travel board with him wherever he goes!

Alright! This is going to make Belize even funner.

Toad -I'm just north of you in Norman. Glad to see a few of us okies get around.

Gela - Thanks, I'll make it to Fido's.

JohnnyK - Some Trivial Pursuit games sounds good.....uh were not going to play for money and I get hustled are we?

Joe - I'll try to look you up as I arrive 2/27 then get settled in.....same thing on hustling, but maybe we wager the next round of belikans.

Mel - If I'm there in June I'll make sure I've got some baileys to slip in your coffee.

MurrMaid - Maybe your husband, Joe, me, and anyone else has an afternoon tournament.

Looks like I'll need room for a chessboard now.
