Today I am going to be explaining how to play chess. Chess is a board game of strategic skill for two players. Chess is played on a chequered board on which each playing piece is moved according to their ability. The objective is to put the kill your opponent's king..
Chess pieces have their own movements to move. The chess pieces have their own positions on the chequered board. Place all your pawns on the second row in front of you. The rooks go in the corners. The knights go next to the rooks. The bishops go next to the knights. Then the queen goes on her colour. That means if your queen is white your queen goes on the white square and your king goes on the last square.
The rules for chess are that white always started first. The king can only move one square in any direction. The queen can move any amount of squares in any direction. The two rooks can move any amount of squares but only in a straight line. The two bishops can move any amount of squares but only diagonally. The two knights can move only in an L shape and the eight pawns can move 2 squares forward in the beginning and one square forward for the rest of the game but the pawns can only take out the opponent's chess pieces diagonally.
So why don't you go ahead and buy a chess board and give it a crack or maybe even join a chess club. So if you never knew how to play chess and read my explanation i hope you now know how to play chess.
