Riddle: The feild where I battle is stained red and black, and all of my troops are armed for attack. Though many will die, no blood will be spilled, and no one will lay on the spot where they're killed. If fortune prevailes and some come back to life, the most likely one to return is my wife, for though I'm immortal, she is the strongest. Sometimes we're defeated if we take the longest. Who are we?
Answer: You are the king on a chessboard, your wife is the queen, and your troops are the knights, bishops, rooks, and pawns.
