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. Each player begins the game with 16 pieces of either black or white color: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. Each of the six piece types moves differently. A player’s pieces are used to attack and capture the opponent’s pieces, while supporting his own – this with the ultimate objective to “checkmate” and capture the opponent’s king which will win the game.
