Chess is a game that probably originated in India and has two sides white and black and different pieces listed below (same pieces for each side):

8 pawns

1 king and queen

2 rooks, knights, and bishops

In chess, here are some of the rules):

  1. A pawn can move up and down until it reaches the end of the board. (When it does, the player gets a queen.)
  2. A rook can move up, down, left, or right as many spaces as it wants as long as there is no other pieces or bounds blocking it.
  3. A bishop can move diagonally as many spaces as it wants as long as there is no other pieces or bounds blocking it.
  4. A queen can move up, down, left, right, or diagonally as many spaces as it wants as long as there is no other pieces or bounds blocking it.
  5. A knight can move 2 spaces up and 1 space right/left.
  6. A king can move in any direction one space as long as the move doesn't put it into check.
  7. If the king is in check and cannot escape, it is checkmate and the checkmating player wins.
