You cut the purple wire.
The countdown clock ticks 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…
The bomb beeps rapidly and then… silence.

“Is that a challenge to play chess,” you quickly reply. “I accept!”
“See how I outmaneuvered you just now, in order to get you to play chess? That’s what I’m talking about,” laughs the chess player. “Your training begins today.”
You beat him in four moves.
