How to Learn Chess on Your Own

 Players will participate in tense anticipation and response as they compete to decide their next best move for the path to victory.

Even though medieval kings have played this game for more than a thousand years, many new players might need help to get around. For a clear, step-by-step explanation of how to teach yourself to play chess, continue reading.
How to Learn Chess on Your Own

Prepare the chessboard.

The game has a platform with vertical columns marked with the letters A–H and a number of horizontal lines numerically labeled 1–8. There are 64 squares total on the boards, and when they are all arranged correctly, the bottom right square on either side of the board will be white.

The next step is for players to become aware with how the chess pieces are placed on the board. Every chess piece represents a particular function and should be positioned on the appropriate square as described below:

• Pawns: Arrange them all in a row on the second table.

• Rooks (the castles): Position these pieces on the board's extreme left and right.

• Rooks must be positioned in the center of the board, followed by the Knights (the horses).

• Bishop: Position the Bishops directly across from the Knights.

• King: The King piece should go on the center square whose color contrasts with its own, for instance, a white King on a black square.

• Queen: In contrast to the King piece, the Queen piece belongs in the central square of its hue.

Acquire the chess piece movements.

Each unique piece has unique movements because of its own hierarchy, much as the roles assigned to inhabitants of the castle. Many chess players are overwhelmed by the seemingly complicated rules governing the movement of the pieces, but with a little assistance, as seen below, you will become accustomed to them quickly.

• Pawn: On their first move, pawns are allowed to advance two spaces. Instead, they can only advance one space and take a piece diagonally from that point on. With the exception of the King, you get to exchange a Pawn to another piece when it finally reaches the end of the opposing board.

• Rook: Depending on the number of squares available, rooks can travel either horizontally or vertically.


• Bishop: Bishops can only walk diagonally on squares of the same color in any number of spaces in any direction.

• Queen: Queens can move horizontally, vertically, diagonally, in any route, over any number of spaces, and they can also capture.

• King: Although it is the most important piece, the king only advances one place every turn in any direction and cannot be captured in this position.

Recognize chess's unique terms and moves.

You've probably heard the chess phrase "castling" a lot. But what exactly is it? You will learn more about several chess words in this section that you may have heard before but may not fully comprehend.

Pawn marketing

You can change a pawn to your preferred Queen, Rook, Bishop, or Knight piece if you are successful in moving it to the other side of the board. Simply take the pawn piece off the board and change it into the desired chess piece. Given its extreme adaptability, the Queen piece is a popular choice.

In transit

Only pawn pieces are referred to as "en passant," which is French for "in passing." A pawn has the chance to capture an opponent's piece diagonally if it lands on the side of the opponent's pawn during its first move, on which it is given two space movements.


By positioning the Rock adjacent to the King on either side of the board after the King has moved two squares in the direction of a Rook, players are able to move their King and a Rook on the same turn. Castling is only permitted when the King and Rook have not moved at all in the game and are separated by no pieces. The fact that it cannot be carried out if the King is under check is another situational circumstance that might apply to this rule.

Make a strategy choice for the game.

A checkmate, a draw, or the opponent's surrender will all conclude the game.


Whenever a King is under check and being unable to retreat, the main goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent's King. A King piece can get out of a check by moving, obstructing, or capturing the ominous piece. When a checkmate is announced, the game is over.
