Rules to Play Chess

Chess is a two player strategy board game played on a chessboard. a checkered gameboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight by eight grid. It is one of the worlds most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide at home, in parks, clubs, online, by correspondence, and in tournaments. Each player begins the game with 16 pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. Each of the six piece types moves differently. Pieces are used to attack and capture the opponents pieces, with the objective to checkmate the opponents king by placing it under an inescapable threat of capture. In addition to checkmate, the game can be won by the voluntary resignation of the opponent, which typically occurs when too much material is lost, or if checkmate appears unavoidable. A game may also result in a draw in several ways, where neither player wins. The course of the game is divided into three phases: opening, middlegame, and endgame.
