Chess is a board game for two players. It is carried out in a square board, consisting of 64 smaller squares, with 8 squares on each side. Each player starts with 16 chess pieces: 8 pawns, 2 knights, 2 elephants, 2 rooks, 1 queen and 1 king. The goal of the game is for each player to try to checkmate with the opponent’s king. Checkmate is a threat (‘check’) to the opposing king, and there is no action to stop it. It ended the game.
During the game, two opponents take turns to move one of their pieces to different squares on the board. One player (‘White’) has light-colored pieces; the other player (‘Black’) has dark-colored pieces. There are rules about how the pieces move and remove the opponent’s pieces from the board. Players who have whites always go first. Because of this, White has a small advantage and wins more times than Black in the game.
