The Rules of Playing Chess

The game chess is played by only two people. One person has sixteen pieces, and the other person has sixteen pieces. One person has the white pieces, while the other person has the black pieces. Then you got the chessboard. It has sixty-four squares on it. Eight rows down, then eight rows across. The rules to chess are simple.     Within those sixteen pieces there are six different categories that the pieces are in. there is one king, one queen, eight pawns, two knights, two rooks, and two bishops. Each of the pieces makes a different move than the other pieces. The king can move one square at a time in any direction. The queen moves in a straight line, and can jump over other pieces. The rooks move up or across the rows, and over the other pieces also. The bishop can move diagonally, and over other pieces too. The knight has the trickiest move; it is in an "L" shape. The pawns move forward one square at a time.     When you are ready to begin playing the board has to be in certain position. It has to be were the black square in the corner needs to be in the lower left hand corner. Each square has its own name like A3, which means it is the square that is in the first row, but it is the third square over.     Now you are all ready to begin your game of chess. Who ever choose to use the white pieces begins first. You begin by making the first move of the whole game. To make a move you move one of your pieces to a different square than what it is on. The main object of the game is to capture the opposite players king. Once one of you accomplishes this game is pretty much over. There is a move called castling, which involves two pieces, the king and the rook. This also involves not moving your pieces. After you have done this with your pieces, your two pieces cannot be taken by the other person. Here are the simple rules for playing chess if you are interested in playing.
