Setup King Queen Bishop Knight Rook Pawn Pieces

Objective to capture, most importantly, the opponent’s king, or his pieces as the game goes on to weaker his offense and defense to protect own pieces, first the king, then the next valuable pieces for your strategy, which usually includes the queen… pawns are often used as sacrifice and are seen of low-value but it maybe life-saving after it reaches the opposite end of the board where it can be exchanged with any piece of the same color, except for the king

pawns are often used as sacrifice and are seen of low-value but it maybe life-saving after it reaches the opposite end of the board where it can be exchanged with any piece of the same color, except for the king

Rules White starts the game Then black makes the move From then on, players alternate turns until game ends End of the Game >when a king is captured or >when a player resigns from the game or >when the game is a draw Game is a Draw >by mutual consent >because of inadequate forces >50-move law >repetition >perpetual check MUTUAL CONSENT called when players feel the play would lead to nothing but draw, and it would just be a waste of time and energy to continue playing INADEQUATE FORCE called when neither player has enough pieces with which to mate, like when all that’s left are kings 50-move law requires that in the next 50 moves, the other player must either mate or show some tangible proof (making a capture or moving a pawn or forcing a pawn-move on the part of one’s opponent) that he has made headway Repetition called if same position is reached 3 times (no other move except the one he’s making repeatedly) Perpetual Check series of checks for a draw

White starts the game

Then black makes the move

From then on, players alternate turns until game ends

Special Moves Checkmate when the king is in check and there’s no possible way to escape from being check, his side lost the game Castling done to hide king in a safer place or create opening for the pieces can only be done if neither king or rook has previously made a move squares between them are not occupied En Passant “ in passing” When pawn advances two squares on its first move and lands next to opponent’s pawn that is on an adjacent file and the same horizontal row, the opponent’s pawn may capture it as if it had advanced only one square 8 th rank pawn when pawn reaches the 8 th rank, or the opponents side of the board, it may be promoted to any piece except the king…if it is promoted to a queen, the move is called queening/promotion

Checkmate

when the king is in check and there’s no possible way to escape from being check, his side lost the game
