How to play chess


Chess how to play the object of the game is to checkmate the other king checkmate happens when the king is in a position to be captured it's in check and cannot escape from the capture at the beginning of the game the chessboard is laid out. 

So that each player is sitting across from the other and has the white or lighter coloured square in the bottom right hand side the chess pieces are then arranged the same way each time.

The second row is filled with pawns the first row should be set up as following going from left to right rook knight bishop king queen bishop knight rook. 

You've set it up correctly if your queen is on the same coloured square as the color of the piece the player with the white pieces always moves first a turn consist of may pieces, 

Pieces cannot move through or over any other piece opponent's pieces can be captured by correctly moving your piece to the square of the opponent's piece when a piece is captured it is eliminated and removed from the board each of the six different kinds of pieces has unique way of moving pawns. 

Move one square forward towards your opponent's side of the board at a time unless it is the first time it has moved during the game in which case it may be moved up to two squares forward pawns can only capture pieces one square diagonal in front of them. 

And cannot capture pieces directly in front of them but instead are unable to move forward it a pawn reaches the other side of the board it can be changed into any other type of piece this is called a promotion rooks can move any number of squares side to side or back and forth rooks cannot move diagonally rooks cannot jump pieces. 

But instead capture the first enemy piece they move into knights move in the shape of an I moving two squares in one direction except diagonal and then one more square at a 90 degree angle the knight jumps over any piece in the way capturing any opponent piece n its final move position bishops can move any number of squares diagonally they capture the first enemy piece they move into the queen can move any number of spaces in any direction the queen captures the first enemy piece.

She moves into the king can move one square at a time in any direction the king can never move himself into check whenever a move directly results in the opponent's king being threatened meaning if an action is not taken the next turn the king would be captured the attacking player must say check the opponent must then use their turn to protect the king by either moving the king out, of check moving a different piece to block the path of the attacker or by capturing the piece that threatens the king. 

If a move directly result in the opponent's king being threatened and there is no move to protect the king the attacking player then declares checkmate. 

The game is over and he wins a draw or stalemate occurs when the king is not in check and the player cannot legally move any of this pieces or if there is any other situation where there is an impossibility of checkmate, there are a couple other types of unique moves. 

King's 1st Move 
Rook's 1st Move
Nothing in Between
King isn't in check 
King doesn't pass through check.

The first is called 


On a player's turn he may move his king two squares over to one side and then move the rook from that side's corner to right next to the king on the opposite side however in order to castle the following conditions must be met it must be the king's very first move it must be that rook's very first move there cannot be any pieces in between the king and the rook. 

And the king  may not be in check nor pass through check. 

The second is called 


If a pawn moves out two squares on his first move and by doing so lands on the side of an opponent's pawn effectively jumping past the other pawn's ability to capture it that other pawn has the option of capturing the first pawn as it passes by, but must do so by the very next turn otherwise it loses the opportunity to capture it the pawn must move diagonally to the square directly behind the other pawn the first player to checkmate their opponent wins.
