Chess is a game of leisure entertainment in the current modern life journey. Chess is a classic two side board game with a total of 32 pieces. Of these 32 pieces, 16 are on one side and the remaining 16 are on the opposite side. Eight of the 16 pieces are of the same type known as pawns. And the other 8 are made up of different pieces such as one king, one queen; two rooks, two bishops and two knights. There are two of colors of chess piece. The game is not only played in leisure time but it can also be played for different prizes where competition are held.

The basic concept for playing it:

The game is played on a black and white board that is identical to a checker board.

These rules must be followed:

  1. There must be a white square at the right corner.
  2. The white queen must be on a white square.
  3. The black queen must be on Black Square.
  4. Number 1 is always where the white pieces are placed.
  5. But remember that who fast chess the board is selected by a toss.

Some introductions for its pieces are given below:

The King:

The king chess piece is the main chess piece and it can move one space in any direction: forward, backwards, or diagonal. The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent's king and if a king is threatened with capture (is in check), it is said that he is in check.  Checkmate happens once the king is under attack while it cannot move and cannot be helped.

The Queen:

The Queen Chess piece can move any number of squares diagonally and also in horizontal and vertical directions and cannot jump over any pieces.

The Knight Chess piece is the only piece that can jump over any other chess pieces and it can move from one corner to the other of any 2×3 rectangle of squares. It always takes at least 3 moves to move to an opposite colored square. In a Chess board it has 4 knights which are 2 White and 2 Black in colors.

The Rook chess piece:

The Rook is a major piece on the Chess board and very powerful in End Game and generally it is called “Castle“.

Like bishops, rooks are long range pieces that can have an influence even from the edge of the board and  in a Chess board it has 4 Rooks  which are 2 White and  2 Black in colors. Rooks are more valuable than bishops and knights. The enemy bishops and knights can attack your rooks  when the rooks moving out in the middle of the board  too early  that can be a big mistake and chase them about. The Rook chess pieces can support the pawns but they are not strong enough to stop them opponent pawns and it should always be kept as backup. When compared to the knight and two pawns then it is somewhat stronger.

The bishop:

The bishop is a piece that used in the game of chess and it is known to all. Each player begins the game with two bishops. One stands  between the king's knight and the king, the other between the queen's knight and the queen that moves diagonally and can move as far as a player wants it to unless another piece blocks it. A bishop can only move to 32 squares of the board and never leave the color of square where it starts firstly. Bishop is deified in two ways such as good bishop and bad bishop.

Good Bishop is on the same color square as his own pawns. Another definition for a bad Bishop is very similar to the previous one, could be the Bishop who can attack his own pawns only.

The pawn:

The pawn is the piece which has the smallest value on the board. But many players   think that pawn is not important. It is very important as you will see.

At the beginning of the game each side has eight pawns that shown in the following diagram.

Chess is a popular game for all age’s people and is played all over the world and now this game and raw materials of its are available in different chess shops in London.
