KindredSpirit’s Special: A Shakespearian Chess Problem Solved?

The number of times the term chess and checking arose in the writings of Shakespeare according to one Randolph Banner is herein listed for your enjoyment. He relates that terms like Queen, Knight, Pawn, Castle, Move appeared in that wonderful magazine, Chess Review, but was not researched. Those of my readership who might be willing to do some research on this, go to it!  Below is Mr. Banner’s contribution to this historical genius.

  • I have checked him…………………………………2 Hen IV  I  2   220
  • I check’d my friends……………………………….Rich III III   7   150
  • If I can check ………………………………………..T G of Ver..  4   213
  • Against all checks…………………………………Mer Wiv III  4  84
  • Nay, you might keep that check………………AYLI   IV…  1   169
  • Thou mayst  be  a queen and check………….K John  II ..1   123
  • And find no check…………………………………..K John V …1   73
  • Hardly can I check………………………………..3 Hen VI  I.4  151 
  • I am desperate of my fortunes if they
  •      check me here……………………………………Oth  II  3..28  338
  • Shameful check it were………………………….A & Cl   IV .4   31

The editor wanted to know if all these checks were chess checks.
