Chess is a two-player strategy game played on a board with 64 squares, arranged in an 8x8 grid, where every move counts and every decision matters
Each player starts the game with 16 pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns.
The objective of the game is to checkmate your opponent's king, which means putting their king in a position where it is under attack (in ""check"") and there is no legal move that they can make to get out of check.
