  nasmichael: The king's pawns hold the center and activity must go queenside in black's territory (and its kingside antipodes) until move 26, when all the minor pieces are deployed and gone. The rooks, the game's oldest (and here wisest) pieces, take the game to its conclusion, with the pawns working together to solidify the terrain. Combat for space makes for interesting battle, but the black king marches forward with a small contingent--and claims the space as his own.

Now, in this (somewhat stilted) and novice example, I would like to see a more experienced player translate the game into a short paragraph (see above) to describe some of the more important ideas to a novice/intermediate player. Extensive analysis aside, a synopsis like this (akin to what is done with other sports in the daily newspaper) makes for immediate understanding of the ideas of the game--and paints a picture with words of what is happening, what to look for--the "who-what-when-where-why" of the game.
