The Chess Play Board has 64 squares of alternating colours (black and white). Each player gets a set of 16 Play Pieces. One player will have a set of dark or black pieces, and the other a light or white. A simple, easy-to- follow, Booklet explains the ” Pieces ” , their moves and the winning strategy through simple language and bright diagrams. The players continue taking their turns, using only their own pieces, either moving or capturing others pieces. The game goes on the same manner until a player checkmates the opponent ‘s King. Checkmate happens when the king is in a position to be captured( in check) and cannot escape from capture.
Checkers, also known as Draughts, is also a classic strategy game for two players played on the same play board. The board is numbered to facilitate reading and recording the game. One player sets up his/her men on the board on numbers 1 to 12 and the other on numbers 21 to 32. These men can only be moved diagonally and in forward direction not backwards. The player who removes all his/her opponent ‘s men from the board or blocks them so that he/ she is unable to move is the WINNER .
