Huh. That's a hard one. Well, from Bergman's "The Seventh Seal", we already know that Death is really good at chess. But God seems pretty crafty, so I don't know. I think Death works for God, so I'll assume he doesn't want to piss of his boss. Death will fake a loss, and God will win.

Death would surely kick God's ass, I dont think God has ever played it..

They would tie. Both of them would have only their kings remaining on the field

I'd much prefer to see them play a game of Kabaddi.

The reaper would be unbelievable at kabaddi!

I think the reaper's slighgtly more cunning and strategic.

If chess is a metaphor for some other triumph, God wins out over Death.

I agree with ninja.

Obscure reference: Didnt the Grim Reaper play chess with Bill and Ted in 'Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey' and lose?!? More than once even?!? If thats the case, then God would spank him silly!

god, he created death. anyway, that is one sick pic of the reaper.

Bo, in Bill and Teds Bogus Jounrey, they played Battleships against death. Also, Cluedo, Twister and a variety of other games, but never chess.

Death got smoked by Bill and Ted and they are idiots. If it were god playing them their would be no way that Bill and Ted would be allowed to return back to life. I think God would beat the crap out of the Grim Reaper.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 6/17/03 - 11:02:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
But the Grim Reaper never played Bill and Ted at chess! They played Battleships, Cluedo, Twister etc.

But it points out that the Grim Reaper can be beaten by mere humans. On an earlier thread the general agreement is that God could not be beaten or at best tie with a human at Chess and Tic Tac Toe. That's at least two game that God can win. I'm only assuming that if Bill and Ted deiced to play 36 out of 71 they would of gotten around to chess and I believe that Bill and Ted would win just like every other game. Granted Bill and Ted would need to play the Grim reaper in chess to make this disorganized proof true beyond a shadow of a doubt. I think it is good enough to assume that Bill and Ted would win thus making God the winner over Death by logical observations. This statement is based upon Bill and Ted being humans. They were also robots. It makes you wonder. Who would win in a game of Chess Bill and Ted or Evil Robot Bill and Ted? I’m tempted to add this but I’m not sure if YT needs another question about who could beat who in chess.

Grim Reaper will cheat and God won't. I'm placing my money on The Reaper.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 7/1/03 - 11:01:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
I thought they DID play chess, then after that death challenged them to a rematch at Battleships, Cluedo, Twister etc.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 7/1/03 - 11:02:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
how the hell do you cheat at chess anyway?
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 7/1/03 - 11:16:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
Uh God would know all the moves reaper would make and would be able to read his mind, therefore he would be able to defeat him

That is NOT a pretty picture you have of God. God is love-1 John 4:8. That picture does NOT show somebody loving.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/6/03 - 3:40:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hate to say this, but God would win.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/6/03 - 3:45:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think God would cheat instinctivly. After all, God would "influence" (control) Death's actions, and make Death make the moves that god would want Death to make. If it were a fair game, neither one using their powers in such a way, then I would suspect Death would win, because he likely has more experience with the game, after all, Chess is fairly well known to be Death's game, and people are god's toys, so unless they play with real people(which they likely do anyway) then Death would win.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/6/03 - 3:47:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Death doesn't work for God, or Satan, he just IS, neither good nor evil.
Both being eternal all powerful beings, barring any cheating, I think Death would win.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/6/03 - 3:50:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Right, i forgot to make that point, Trips. I agree with Trips that he's neither good nor evil
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/6/03 - 3:51:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have no idea, but I'm wondering what would the winner get?
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/6/03 - 3:54:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think God would really control Death, I really don't know why everytime a question of god vs something comes up, people assume God will instinctively cheat.
I think he would be a little bit above that.

Though, since God can defy death(bring people back to life), the two *concepts* going against each other, God would win just because he CAN cheat, so he's stronger then death.
