HOW TO PLAY
Chess is a game played for fun or for competition. It involves two players who strategically try to outwit their opponent as they try to be the last standing on the game board. Each player has sixteen pieces with which they go against their opponent.

Players start with one king, one queen, two rooks, two bishops, two knights, and eight pawns. Players try to out-smart their opponent in order to take their King. When a player manages to capture the King the game is over and the other player has won.
