  • Some useful information for chess beginners

    If you are beginner in this sport, or if you do not know anything about chess rules, this is a useful post for us.
    - Chess and the square board divided into 8 columns and 8 rows, which has 64 fields - alternating black and white.
    - Player begins the game with 16 chess pieces: 8 pawns, 1 king, 1 queen, 2 bishops, 2 rooks and 2 knights.
    - One player plays white and the other with black pieces. They move their chess pieces alternately, but "White" plays first (starts a game).
    - The aim of the game is to bring opponents to checkmate (checkmate means dead king) situation.​Checkmate is a situation where the king was attacked and there is no way to protect themselves from attacks.
    - In addition to checkmate, the game can end in a draw or stalemate - then the score is tied.

    hey thankyou for that useful information, but is it possible if you show me how the movement of all characters goes, and how to win?

      Of course Marvo, ​it will be my pleasure.
      1. First thing - movement of all chess pieces:
      - The king can move one square in all directions.​
      - The queen can move any number of squares - linear or diagonal.
      - The rooks can move any number of squares - just linear
      - The bishops move any number of squares - diagonally.
      - The knight moves to as "L"-shape
      - The pawn moves linear for one or two square (when he stepped on the opponent's half, a pawn can move only one square​), but he "eat" the opponent's piece diagonally​
      2. Second thing - how to win? The winner is the player who checkmate the opponent's king.

      I hope I helped you.

          Good to see detailed roles of chess pieces here. That is important to know and then to follow the skills or techniques on how to do checkmates.
