Does playing chess burn calories?

Emilio asked the Naked Scientists:

Dear Chris

I've wondered for a very long time (and have never been able to find a
reliable answer) if intellectual activity (such as playing chess) burns
calories. And, if so, how many per hour.

Thanks
Emilio

What do you think?
