"Zugzwang By Zero"
Issue#63: "Zugzwang By Zero"
Beauregarde is a sore loser...
Notes and References:
Zero and Beauregarde play a game of Chess. Emily Hair mentioned to Zero that Beauregarde was good at Chess in issue#61: "Pookananny Hootenanny".
Beauregarde continues to be able to see Pookas and be heard by Pookas. This connection was first established in issue#52: "See No Feigenbaum, Hear No Beauregarde".
This is the fourth appearance of the character Nephew Zero who has been appearing for the entire month of August as it is "Pooka-Month".
"Zugzwang" is a situation in Chess where one player is put at a disadvantage by being forced to make a move against their initial strategy. Zugzwang is a German word that means "compulsion to move".
Zero won the Chess game by putting Beauregarde in Zugzwang.
