Chess is a two-player game of strategy and tactics on a checkered board. Although there are many different styles and colors of chess sets, white and black are the conventional colors, and on this page, we will use those terms to refer to the two players. The goal of the game is to checkmate your opponent by trapping their king. In chess, this is known as "resigning," and there are a number of ways a game can conclude in a draw, in which case neither player wins. A game can also be won if your opponent quits up. Later, we'll take a closer look at these.

The Chess Pieces:

Eight pawns, a king, a queen, two rooks, two bishops, and two knights formed each player's army. You must move one piece to a new square each turn. After the player with the white pieces moves, the other players take turns moving a piece. In chess, there are no dice; each piece has a unique technique of moving, and you choose which one to use. Each piece can also 'take' or capture an adversarial piece. To accomplish this, just place your piece or pawn on the square that the opposing piece is now occupying and take it off the board.
