Chapter 1


SO, YOU WANT TO LEARN how to play chess? Good for you! Chess is a fun and interesting game that you can enjoy for your whole life. Chess is also a very old game that people have played all over the world for almost 2,000 years!

To use this guide, it would help to have a chessboard in front of you. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but it should have all of the pieces, which we’ll talk about later. It can either be a physical board or on the computer, but it will be easiest for you to understand the directions if you can follow along on your own. There are pictures to help you, but some of the movements will make more sense if you get to do them yourself. It will help you learn if you can play with a friend or against a computer to practice all of the different moves and strategies. It’s okay to just learn some of the steps and then practice those for a while until you are comfortable with them. Then, once you’re ready to move on, you can try the next section!

To begin, you need two people and a chessboard. The two people play against each other. The goal of the game is to capture the ‘King’ piece of your opponent, the person you’re playing against. To capture the king, you have to attack him with other pieces. An attack on the king is called ‘check.’ If you attack the king in such a way that he has no way to get out of it or avoid it, it is called ‘checkmate, ‘ and the game is over. The king that is checkmated has lost.

The first thing you need to know in order to play is what the board looks like and how the pieces move.
