I did when I was in high school and my one year of Collage (ran into a Cherokee from Oklahoma?) who made me realize how good a master chest player was, he could play 5 games against experienced chess player at a time and win all of them most of the time.

That said, those are not my kind of pawns. They all have their swords back. You need to have them pointed forward!
