Synthesis of European and Asian forms of Chess.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Fergus Duniho wrote on 2004-03-15 UTCYou wrote: 'someone earlier on this list indicated that the name 'Eurasian chess' implies a chauvinistic western standing, and the writer suggests the name 'Asiropean' chess.' You are reading way too much into what that person wrote. All he/she wrote was 'Hmmmm...so what would an 'Asiropean Chess' look like? :-)' There has never been any suggestion from anyone but you that the name 'Eurasian Chess' implies any kind of chauvinism. And it's a ridiculous idea. The simple fact is that eurasian is a real English word and asiropean is not.
