They never played because they were not contemporaries.
Paul Morphy had a brilliant but short chess career. He played from 1857 to 1860, when he retired from active play against the top competition, unofficial second world chess champion after Anderssen Adolf. After that, he played casually and in demonstrations playing well blindfolded against many people at the same time.
Steinitz did not emerge as a chess power until 20 years later in the 1880s. He became the first official champion in 1886.
Steinitz actually met Morphy in New Orleans, but the conditions Morphy set for the meeting were that they could talk about anything except chess. When Maurian delivered Morphy's message to Steinitz, Morphy told him to tell Steinitz that "His gambit (the Steinitz gambit in King's Gambit) is entirely unsound." This shows that Morphy was familiar with Steinitz's games, but he had already given up playing chess with all but his life-long friend Maurian.
The most Morphy ever played blindfold at one time was ten, many times it was eight.
Nobody ever dared call himself World Chess Champion while Morphy lived. The title was created after Morphy died.

In the Bible why Paul never married?

The Bible doesn't indicate that Paul never married; no specific statement is made one way or the other. Given all the available scriptural evidence, Paul seems to have been a widower. Acts 26:10 - This I also did in Jerusalem, and many of the saints I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I cast my vote against them . This testimony from Paul's hearing before Agrippa suggests that he was at one time a member of the Sanhedrin. If so, it was required that he be a married man. However, it's obvious he did not have a wife by the time he wrote the following passage: 1 Corinthians 7:8, 9 - But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion. The implication is that Paul was a widower and fully able to exercise self-control in matters of "passion." Thus he could encourage others to "remain even as I am;" unburdened by spousal obligations, thus better able to devote his life to Christ...not because of any commandment to remain unmarried ( 1 Cor. 9:5 ), but as a matter of prudence.

How do you play the game I've never...?

there are two ways to play, the adult version and the kids version. the adult version- you get into a group with friends, or family and you each have a glass of alcohol fill to the same level. the youngest person starts. the youngest person says somthing that starts with "i've never..." and who ever this statment is untrue to takes a drink of the alcohol and you keep going and the first person to have drank all their alcohol loses. the kids version- its along the same lines as the adult version without the alcohol instead of drinking the alcohol you hold up your fingers and the first person to have all ten fingers up loses. other than that it is the exact same.

What if Paul never converted?

then we will not be here in the present time ANSWER 2: This can only be supposition, but it would seem that Saul (Paul) would have continued in his persecution of Christ's followers. Without Paul in the picture as a devoted Christian, the New Testament of the Bible might have contained more writings of Peter, the chosen one of Jesus to be His "rock" upon which the church would be built. The NT and church today might not have been built around the teachings of Paul rather than Peter.
