TO PLAY CHESS
Chess is set
up on an eight by eight square board like in the picture below.
The object of chess is to capture the opponent's king. The white
player always moves first. When one player is in position to capture the
king this position is called "check". You don't have to say check when
this position is happening.
The game of chess consists of three
stages: (1) the opening, (2) the middle, and (3) the end game. In the opening,
players move their pieces so that they have an advantage to capture the
opponent's pieces. Professional chess players recommend only moving the
pieces once or twice until you've moved them all.
In the middle of the game, players try to gain advantage in the position
or number of their men in preparation for a direct attack on the enemy
In the end game players try to capture the opponent's king to win the game.
