Proposed deletion of Cheskers[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Cheskers, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Game does not appear to be notable, I can't find any instances of it being covered by anything even approaching reliable sourcing.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

I (hawo1701) added the first draft of this page. I agree that the game is not widely known, and spending a separate page on it is debatable. However, it's a genuine game, proposed by a third party and I give reference to a source that describes the rules. S. Golomb is a well-known mathematician and I believe his game deserves higher profile by being added here. Also, this pages is of concrete use: we use this game in a computer science course to implement an AI (I am a lecturer in computer science [1]) and one reason for putting the page online was to give a canonical description of the rules for reference to students implementing the game. I plan to extend the page during our course.
