    "Tired of" and "Tired with"

    Is there any difference btw "Tired of" and "Tired with"?

    Please kindly help explain.

    I was tired of playing chess.
    'Of' indicates the reason for being tired.

    'With' is used with some predicates to name an emotion a person is experiencing, e.g. stricken with fear, filled with horror. This emotion is specified in the with-phrase. But I've never run across 'tired' used with 'with'. Maybe because 'tired' is already a feeling.
