No Chess

Oddly, according to the Ayatollah Sistani, one should not play chess:
Question: Is playing a chess allowed?
Answer: It is absolutely unlawful.

I do not know the theological reasoning behind this. I don't even know if the site is real, though it's very elaborate for a gag. (Hat tip: Jesse Walker.)
