    Draughts using tabs of LSD for counters?

    Reminiscent of the game of draughts using whisky miniatures in Our Man in Havana. But would make better scene of film with acid instead.

    And for a bonus, what other seemingly-unrelated pastimes might fruitfully be combined with pleasing effect?

    Hot air balloon polo

    Combat Jenga

    Prince Albert Welly Throwing

    Bungee fly-fishing

    I have for some time had an ambition to combine punting with rugby.

    Mountain biking and miniatures painting.

    Tuba playing and cinema going.

    Old peoples’ home volunteering and auto-erotic asphyxiation.

    Lennox Lewis would seem to be an easy favourite here; with sufficient boxing skill then you don’t need to have sufficient chess ability to win – though rumour has it that Lennox knows what he’s doing on the 64 squares – merely sufficient chess ability to avoid being checkmated. While the reverse is also true for people with sufficient chess ability, my gut feeling is that it’s rather easier to take artificially slow moves throughout the chess rounds than it is to float like a butterfly and keep out of the range of the punches of the boxing rounds.

      Mm, I don’t know enough chess to judge whether a better player can effectively force aggression on one who’s trying to be evasive.
