Chess is an extraordinarily simple game that’s been around for centuries. From just a few pieces and 64 spaces arises an effectively endless number of possible games. To win the game, you’ll need to secure checkmate – putting your pieces in a position where the opponent’s king is 'in check' and can’t possibly escape from being captured the following turn. To become really proficient at chess, you’ll need to study the games played by the grandmasters until you’ve internalized every possible move in every possible situation. Even then, beating a competent computer opponent is very difficult! This digital version of the game is great fun, and can be played without setting up a real board. Play chess game now on GamePix!
