Chess is a game

played between 2 players

with each player having

black or white pieces.


There are different pieces on the board.

8 Pawns, 2 Rooks, 2 Knights, 2 Bishops, a King
a Queen  each with both the players.


Each player tries to win

by gaining material

or through some tactics.


The pawn  is usually the start of the game,

And the knight is the piece

which jumps away,

The Bishop’s pleasure is

it’s own colour diagonal.

While on the straight lines

the rook will sway,

The queen can help

both the rook and the bishop,

As she can move both ways,


But first thing to do,

your king you have to save.


your opponent will CHECKMATE!!!
