     The Game 
The Bishops are female
Why, you may ask? Well, I just think so for some reason and it's Wild Mass Guessing.
  • Then why do they look like penises?
    • Penis Envy.

The King is married to the Queen and every other piece is a member of his Harem
Yes, the King. My theory is he is married to the Queen, but every other piece is a female member of his harem. The fact that pawns can promote to Queens as well as any other piece may lend some support to this. And, when the King loses, the game is automatically over. Why? Because the opposing side takes the other pieces for their King's harem.

The Chess was invented by a Feminist
  • How else can the Queen - the only unambiguously female piece in the game - be the most powerful piece in the game?
    • Britain, of course, where powerful queens are not atypical. (In some very early versions of the game, the queen was the "vizier" and could only move one space at a time, like the king.)

After the Bolivian Army Ending the winning side spares the life of the loser for him to live with the shame.
At least until they meet again for the rematch.

The old man really was Florence's father
The State Department hung the both of them out to dry in order to get their man.

     The Musical (British Version) 

Viigand is an Autistic Savant
He doesn't talk because he can't. He's brilliant at chess, but it's the only useful thing he can do.
  • Doesn't he have a line in act 1? Comes in to Anatoly's hotel after 'Where I Want To Be', says a line, and gets told to go to hell? I might be thinking of a different show here though.
