The origin of Chess is somewhat sketchy. However, we do know that Chess has been around for hundreds of years. Chess is a game of strategy and skill.
The Chess board is a square-shaped board which has eight rows of horizontal and eight rows of vertical squares. The individual squares alternate between a light color and a dark color.
Chess pieces include eight pawns, two knights, two bishops, two rooks, and a king and queen for each of the two players, which are on opposing sides of the Chess board. The object of Chess is to checkmate your opponent.
