Chess is an ancient strategy game that some believe to have originated in India. It is played by two individuals on an 8x8 grid. The objective is to maneuver one's pieces so as to trap the opposing king in "checkmate". This book will cover the basic pieces of chess, before going on to some more advanced topics.
