About Course

Chess is a timeless game of strategy, intellect, and skill that has captivated players for centuries. If you're new to chess, welcome to the world of kings and queens, knights and bishops! Here's a beginner's guide to get you started on your chess journey:

  1. Introduction to Chess: Chess is a two-player board game played on a checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an 8x8 grid. Each player controls an army of 16 pieces, including a king, queen, bishops, knights, rooks, and pawns.

  2. Objective: The objective of chess is to checkmate your opponent's king, meaning the king is in a position to be captured (in "check") and there is no legal move to escape capture (checkmate). The game ends when one player achieves checkmate or a draw is agreed upon.

  3. Movement of Pieces:

    • King: Can move one square in any direction.
    • Queen: Can move any number of squares in any direction (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally).
    • Bishops: Move diagonally any number of squares.
    • Knights: Move in an "L" shape, two squares in one direction (horizontal or vertical) and then one square perpendicular to that.
    • Rooks: Move horizontally or vertically any number of squares.
    • Pawns: Move forward one square (or two squares on their first move), capture diagonally, and have special moves like en passant and promotion.
