me: j'adoube
me: (knocks the whole chessboard off the table)

@codl i don’t know what this means but it feels powerful

@halcy @codl in chess, if you touch one of your pieces on your turn and it has any legal moves, you must take one of them

the exception is if you say "j'adoube" first, to let your opponent know that the way the piece is sitting inside the square is bugging you and you're just going to fix it

@monorail @halcy also worth mentioning that "j'adoube" is old timey french for "i adjust"
