There are 6 types of chess pieces there is the rook, knight, queen, king, bishop and pawn the pawn is useful because when your pawn gets to the other end of the chess board the pawn will turn into a queen so that means if your queen does not mean you will have two queens. The king is also useful because you have to protect your king and keep it safe because if your king is trapped and can't move anywhere that's a checkmate. You have to use techniques to defeat your opponent; you may also have to confuse your opponent. Chess can also use timers so there can only be 10 minutes or 5 if your opponent uses up all their minutes they lose and you win.
The queen can go anywhere on the board it can go straight, backwards, forward, left to right and diagonal. She is kinda like the rook but a rook can only go straight, backwards, right and left. Next is the knight, the knight can only move in L’s and it can only go straight, backwards and right to left. The pawn can only move forward nothing else but if there is another piece that is diagonal it will move and eat it and takes its place. Also the bishop is my favorite place because it's like the queen but it can only move diagonally and it has to stay on the same color that the bishop was on.
So when you are white you have to move first and then black and to make it challenging I put a timer for 5 minutes and when you make any piece move just click the timer to change it to the other person's turn to make them move their chess pieces. So that is how you play chess and chess is a game for technique as well.
