Chapter 397: First Victory!
Looking at the chess piece, Maha’s three incarnations pondered together.
Chess pieces could be placed everywhere on the chessboard. “tengen” was the most stable place in the entire star map.
Putting the first chess piece here was meaningless, because the nature of tengen would barely change in the game, which meant that it was equal to give up one’s first move advantage.
Yun Xi just gave up his “sente”!
“Kakari.” Manjusri Bodhisattva pointed to the corner of the chessboard.
“Top left corner.” Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pointed to the corner on the left.
“The right corner is also fine.” Maitreya Buddha laughed loud. Apparently, he thought that his victory was already in the bag.
The young boy was apparently a newbie, because he didn’t even know that no one could put the chess piece in the center of the chessboard at the beginning. He had lost the upper hand!
After thinking a minute, the Sacred Monk Maha picked up a red chess piece and put it into the slot in the left corner of the star map, where Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pointed at.
It wasn’t his best choice, however, he wanted to test Yun Xi’s style of playing Star Go by this.
His Buddha dharma “Maha Mystery” recorded the styles of all the chess players he had observed.
All chess players had their own style when playing Star Go. Norn the God of Wisdom’s style was stable; Orfina the Ruby Dragon’s style was wild; some people were good at making traps in the game, if they couldn’t be at the upper hand, they would already lose half; some people were good at counterattack, if they were on the offensive, they would be at a loss about what to do; some people’s state was unstable, they could be invincible when they were in a good state, but would also be dashed to the ground when they were in a bad state.
The Starry Sky Chessboard was the battlefield of wisdom. The Sacred Monk Maha was a secret weapon the Buddhism had prepared a thousand years for this day.
Everyone could use all magics, theurgy, and equipment on the chessboard. Just like the real world, winner obtains everything.
Looking at the sacred monk, Yun Xi showed an expression of “I know you will put the chess piece there!”. He put the second chess piece in the slot where was in the opposite direction of Maha’s chess piece on the chessboard.
Oh, he likes to counterattack? Maha was lost in thought again. When half of the sands had dropped to the bottom of the hourglass, he moved again.
Even if your defense is strong, it wouldn’t be meaningless to face my stronger attack!
“Attack!” Manjusri Bodhisattva nodded.
“You should attack.” Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva put his palms together devoutly.
“You must attack!” Maitreya Buddha laughed.
Therefore, Maha started his fierce attack. After ten rounds, half of the area on the chessboard had been occupied by Maha’s chess pieces. He had even eaten three of Yun Xi’s chess pieces.
“Ok, it’s over.” Yun Xi looked at the chessboard and began to draw the net in.
Ten rounds later, Maha still attacked fiercely, and Yun Xi started to link up his chess pieces on the chessboard.
The 11th round, Yun Xi’s chess pieces suddenly emitted green lights.
Seven chess pieces formed a completed “Sanctuary of Wind”, which he also used in the Nine Chess Pieces Go.
“Amitabha!” Looking at the chessboard, Maha was shocked.
Originally, his chess pieces had dominated the chessboard, but when Yun Xi put down a chess piece, a “ko” formed and the situation was totally reversed.
What happened? When did he make the mistake that caused this happening?
“Not here.” Manjusri Bodhisattva loosened his fingers.
“Not there.” Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva shook his head.
“Not here, not there!” Maitreya Buddha patted his stomach and laughed bitterly.
Maha froze. His hand raised highly but couldn’t put the chess piece down.
He didn’t expect that the situation suddenly became so bad to him! They hadn’t even played 50 rounds!
No, there is still hope!
“Well, is the monk thinking that he can still save the situation?” Mei’er sat on Yun Xi’s shoulder, kicking his hair with a naughty look.
“Hmm, I think he is gonna lose, but… maybe there are some changes I don’t find.” Looking at the star map, Yun Xi didn’t find any problem.
“Amitabha! Maha means infinite! If someone has to take the tough stuff, let me do it!” Maha chanted with a religious look. His six arms raised the six talismans together.
The vase, pearl, vajra, wand, sword and Buddhist sutra emitted bright lights together. One picture of Mandala after another appeared behind him.
“No! No!” Manjusri Bodhisattva lowered his head.
“Stop! Stop!” Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva looked at him with compassion.
“You are done! You are done!” Maitreya Buddha shook his stomach.
These pictures of Mandala was Maha’s treasures, they were disposable goods he borrowed from a predecessor of Buddhism. Each of the picture could temporarily increase a part of his computing power.
He obstinately thought that he still stood a chance to save the situation!
As the secret weapon of Buddhism, the monk who could create the Buddha dharma “Maha Mystery”, he couldn’t be defeated in the first game! Moreover, his opponent was just a newbie!
“Buddha is compassionate!” He shouted. After that, his eyes became clear as if he just obtained a great awakening.
In the 100th round, Yun Xi put down the 100th chess piece, which announced the victory of his first battle.
“Oh, benefactor, fate has brought us together, you are predestined to join Buddhism!” Although he had been defeated, the Sacred Monk Maha didn’t look dejected. He raised all the treasures in his six hands and smiled at Yun Xi.
“If you want to join Buddhism, just go to the Temple of Manjusri in the west of the Kunlun God’s Domain!”
