Chess for Beginners

Posted by Jordan Snider on Aug 26, 2019 5:00:02 AM

Chess is a very popular two-person strategy board game that is played all over the world by millions of people of all ages. Its roots are believed to have sprouted from a 7th century game from India, Chaturanga.  Each player starts with 16 pieces:

  • one king
  • one queen
  • two rooks
  • two knights
  • two bishops
  • eight pawns

Every piece moves in a different way and the objective of the game is to checkmate the king or to end in a draw. Competitive chess games have been played since 1886.
