Chess is a very famous strategy board game which is played by the two players on a chessboard. Chess is a checkered game board containing 64 equally sized squares in 8x8 grids. Each player starts his game with the help of 16 important pieces with different attacking moves. These pieces contains: 1 king, 1 queen, 2 knights, 2 rooks, 2 bishops and 8 pawns. These essential pieces are used by each player to capture the pieces of the other opponent with the intention to checkmate the king by putting it into the web of unavoidable logical moves.
