The chessboard is a board made of 64 squares configured in 8 rows and 8 columns.   The squares are arranged in 2 contrasted colors : one being dark and the other being light.  Here is an example of a chessboard:

The chessboard is the battleground of a chess game.   By looking at the image above, we can already see that it can be divided in several parts.  We already mentioned rows and columns but there are also the diagonals. In the chess world, we usually use the term "rank" when referring to a row and "file" when referring to a column.   These three entities are really important for elaborating strategies.  At the elite level, the players will often do anything they can to control a specific file, rank or diagonal.  There will even have a ferocious battle just to control a simple square on the board!
