Chess is one of the most popular board games in India, played by millions of people all around the world. It is completely a strategy-based game played between two players. Chess is played on a square board with 64 black and white squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. 

The Chess pieces are divided into two colors, black and white. Each player is having 16 pieces (either black or white); a King, a Queen, two Rooks, two Bishops, two Knights, and eight Pawns to play the game. The aim of the player is to checkmate (the King is under immediate attack) the opponent’s King. That means the opponent has no more legal move. A move in response to a check is legal only if it results in a position where the King is no longer in the attack.

The rules to play online Chess are very much similar to the conventional Chess rules. 

  • The player who got the white piece will start the game. Then the game continues with players making a single move at a time.   
  • Each piece in Chess has its own way of moving. The basic rules to move each piece are, 
  1. KING: The King is the most important but the weakest piece in Chess. All the user is doing is protecting the King from attacks. The King can move only one square in any direction (up, down, diagonal, left, or right) if no piece is blocking his direction. 
  2. QUEEN: The Queen can move unconditionally in an unlimited number of squares in any direction, straight or diagonally but cannot leap over other pieces. Queen is one of the most powerful pieces in Chess because Queen combines the power of a Bishop and a Rook. 
  3. ROOKS: A Rook can move any number of squares horizontally or vertically but cannot leap over other pieces.
  4. BISHOPS: Each Bishop stands in a color either black or white. The Bishop can move diagonally to any unoccupied square on that particular color without leaping over other pieces. 
  5. KNIGHTS: The Knights move in an ‘L’ shape (two squares vertically and one square horizontally or two squares horizontally and one square vertically). The Knight is the only piece in Chess that can leap over other pieces. 
  6. PAWNS: Pawns can move two squares forward in their first move and then to a single unoccupied square immediately in front of it. Pawns are usually the first pieces to move at the beginning of the game. A Pawn usually captures its opponent diagonally by moving into that square. If you can move your Pawn to the opponent’s square, you can change the Pawn to any other piece.  
  • Check – When a King is Under immediate attack, it is called a Check. A move in response to the check is possible only when there is a safe position available for the King to move. 
  • Checkmate – When there is no possible way to move the King in Check, it is called Checkmate. The game ends in Checkmate. The main objective of the player is to checkmate the opponent. 
  • Castling – Castling is a move made by the King along with the Rook. In castling, the King can move two squares toward a Rook of the same color on the same rank and then place the Rook on the square that the King crossed. There are a few conditions to make castling possible. They are,
  1. Neither the King nor the Rook has moved previously in the game.
  2.  There are no pieces between the King and the Rook.
  3. The King is not in check.
  4. The King does not pass through or land on any square attacked by the opponent. 
  5. Castling can also be done if the Rook is in the attack.
  • DRAW – The players are allowed to draw the game at any point with mutual agreement. Then both will share the prize money. 

How to play Chess for beginners?

Chess is a strategy-based game, played by following certain rules. Here are some tips to play chess online.

  • Learn the rules correctly before entering into the battle. 
  • Choose the battle wisely by considering your expertise in Chess.
  • Castling cannot be done if you move the King earlier.
  • While the opponent makes a move, guess why he makes such a move and act wisely. 
  • Always make sure that the King is safe.
  • Focus on attacking than defending.
  • If you can move your Pawn safely to your opponent’s side, the pawn can be changed to any other piece according to your wish. 
  • Always try to foresee the next two movements you can make. 
  • Don’t accept many sacrifices in the beginning. 
  • Always take care of the Pawn’s weaknesses.
