I was filling up my work vehicle today at a Sunoco when their TV at the pump flashed a word of the day. I got a kick out of it, so I just had to post it here. Go to town folks!!

Zugswang - a situation in which the obligation to make a move in one's turn is a serious, often decisive, disadvantage.

Origin of zugzwang
Zugzwang in German means “compulsion to move,” originally a technical term in chess for a situation in which one is forced to make a disadvantageous move. As a chess term, zugzwang has been in English since the early 20th century.
