Now that you know how the pieces move, it's time to set up and start the game. Each player starts with a light square in the lower right-hand corner. Rooks are placed in the corners, with knights next to them, followed by bishops. Kings and queens are placed in the center squares of the back rank with the queen on her own color. All White pawns start on the 2nd rank and all Black pawns start on the 7th rank.
