Beginners Guide to learning Chess

Chess is a game of skill, devoid of chance, played on a chequered board of 64 squares between two opponents, one with a team of 16 light-colored chessmen and the other with 16 dark-colored men.

Light and dark move alternatively. The pieces move across the chess board according to predetermined rules, which have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Although the object of the game is to checkmate the opponent's King, it may never be removed from the board.
