Chess is a two player strategy board game on the board. The board is a board game with 64 squares arranged in 8 × 8 grid. Millions of people around the world are playing the game.

Each player starts with 16 pieces: a king, a queen, two white billed crows, two knights, two bishops and eight pieces. Six kinds of chessmen move in different ways. The most powerful one is the queen, and the least powerful pawn. The aim is to make the opponent king by placing him under the inevitable threat of occupation. For this reason, players' pieces are used to attack and capture opponents' pieces, while supporting each other. In addition to generals, the competition can be won by voluntary resignation of opponents, which usually happens when too much material is lost or unavoidable generals. The game can also end the draw in many ways.

It is believed that chess originated in India before the 7th century, and originated from the Indian game chaturanga, which is also the ancestor of the Oriental strategic games Xiangqi, janggi and Shogi. (minority view holds that chess originated in China.) These pieces occupied the current power of Spain in the late 15th century; some began to be used in Spain in the late 15th century. The rules were eventually standardized in the 19th century. Wilhelm Steinitz, the first internationally recognized chess champion, won the title in 1886. Since 1948, the world championships have been managed by the game's international governing body, fide. It also organized the world women's championships, the World Youth Championships, the world advanced Championships, the Blitz and fast world championships and the chess Olympics. There is also a world chess championship and a world computer chess championship. Online chess opens amateur and professional competitions to a wide range of players.
