The amazing Chess!


#Chess is one of the oldest and most #traditional board games played in the world, without distinction of

races, cultures and social customs. According to the trace that has been made about the #origin of this popular board #game , it is

has concluded that it is something of a distant relative of both #Chinese and #Japanese chess, because there is a belief that

says that all of them are an inspiration of #chaturanga , a game that was played in India #back in the 6th century and that

To be able to play chess it will #be necessary to have a chess board, the #pieces , know the rules of the game and a

rival to face of course.

It can be ended by abandonment of a #player , excess time, a draw or a draw. Chess is a board game in which

two #people face each other, each having 16 tiles or pieces that #represent the different characters of a

monarchical army and each one has different #characteristics that, following the rules of the game, allow them to move

on the game board, divided into #64 #squares or squares, dark and light alternately.

The objective of chess is to first defeat the opponent's #King , taking him off the board.

According to the #rules of chess, this is #done by threatening the square occupied by the opponent's King with one of the pieces

their own, without the other player being able to #protect the King from him by interposing a piece between him and the piece that threatens him,

move his king to a free square or #capture the piece that is threatening him. #Leaving the other player without any of these

options, it results in checkmate and the end of the game.
