How to Set Up the Chess Board

Chess is played on a chessboard, a square board divided into 64 squares (eight-by-eight) of alternating color, which is similar to that used in draughts. No matter what the actual colors of the board, the lighter-colored squares are called "light" or "white", and the darker-colored squares are called "dark" or "black". Sixteen "white" and sixteen "black" pieces are placed on the board at the beginning of the game. The board is placed so that a white square is in each player's near-right corner.

Each player controls sixteen pieces:
  • King: 1 piece
  • Queen: 1 piece
  • Rook: 2 piece
  • Bishop: 2 piece
  • Knight: 2 piece
  • Pawn: 8 piece
The first step in preparing to play a game of chess is making sure the board is set correctly. Look at the square in the lower right-hand corner for each player. This should be a white square. An easy way to remember this rule is the phrase "white on right."
Next is setup all the pieces.
