A Brief Outline Of The Rules For Chess:

  1. The ultimate goal in the game of chess, is to trap your opponent's king.
    This is called checkmate and you win.
  2. White always moves first.
  3. Each player takes a turn (must move one piece)
  4. Each type of piece has its own method of movement
  5. A piece may be moved to another position or may capture an opponent's piece
    • This is done by landing on the appropriate square with the moving piece and removing the defending piece from play.
    • With the exception of the knight, a piece may not move over or through any of the other pieces
