  2. 2. Origin Of Chess The history of chess spans some 1500 years. The earliest predecessors of the game originated in India,before the 6th century AD. From India, the game spread to Persia. When the Arabs conquered Persia, chess was taken up by the Muslim world and subsequently spread to Southern Europe. In Europe, chess evolved into roughly its current form in the 15th century Free PowerPoint Backgrounds In the second half of the 19th century, modern chess tournament play began, and the first world Chess Championship was held in 1886. http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com

  7. 7. The King In chess, the king (♔, ♚) is the most important piece. The object of the game is to trap the opponents king so that its escape is not possible (checkmate). If a players king is threatened with capture, it is said to be in check, and the player must remove the threat of capture on the next move. If this cannot be done, the king is said to be in checkmate. Although the king is the mostFree PowerPoint Backgrounds important piece, it is usually the weakest piece in the game until a later phase, the endgame. http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com
  8. 8. Queen The queen (♕,♛) is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Each player starts the game with one queen, placed in the middle of the first rank next to the king. With the chessboard oriented correctly, the white queen starts on a white square and the black queen on a black square.Free PowerPoint Backgrounds http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com
  9. 9. Rook The rook participates with the king, in a special move called castling. In general, rooks are stronger than bishops or knights (which are called minor pieces) and are considered greater in value than either of those pieces by nearly two pawns but less valuable than two minor pieces. Two rooks are generally considered to be worth slightly more than a queen. Winning a rook for a bishop or knight is referred to as winning the exchange.Free PowerPoint Backgrounds Rooks and queens are called heavy pieces or major pieces, as opposed to bishops and knights, the minor pieces. http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com
  10. 10. Bishop The bishop has no restrictions in distance for each move, but is limited to diagonal movement. Bishops, like all other pieces except the knight, cannot jump over other pieces. A bishop captures by occupying the square on which an enemy piece sits. The bishops may be differentiated according to which wing they begin on,the kings bishop and queens bishop. As a consequence ofFree PowerPoint Backgrounds its diagonal movement, each bishop always remains on either the white or black squares, and so it is also common to refer to them as http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com light squared or dark squared
  11. 11. knight The knight move is unusual among chess pieces. When it moves, it can move two squares horizontally and one square vertically, or two squares vertically and one square horizontally. The complete move therefore looks like the letter L. Unlike all other standard chess pieces, the knight can jump over all other pieces to its destination square. It captures an enemy piece by moving into its square. The knights ability to jump over other pieces means it tends to be at its most powerful in closed positions, in contrast to that of a bishop. The move is one of the longest-survivingFree PowerPoint Backgroundsmoves in chess, having remained unchanged since before the seventh century. http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com
  12. 12. pawn The pawn (♙♟) is the most numerous and weakest piece in the game of chess, historically representing infantry, or more particularly armed peasants or pikemen. Each player begins the game with eight pawns, one on each square of the rank immediately in front of the other pieces. Unlike the other pieces, pawns may not move backwards. Normally a pawn moves by advancing a single square, but the first time a pawn is moved, it has the option of advancing two squares. Pawns may not use the initial two-square advance to jump over an occupied square, or to capture.Free PowerPoint BackgroundsAny piece directly in front of a pawn, friend or foe, blocks its advance. http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com
  13. 13. Game Clock A game clock consists of two adjacent clocks and buttons to stop one clock while starting the other, such that the two component clocks never run simultaneously. Game clocks are used in two- player games where the players move in turn. The purpose is to keep track of the total time each player takes for his or her own moves, and ensure that neither player overly delays the game. Game clocks were first used extensively in tournament chess, and are often called chess clocks. The first time that game clocks were used in a chess tournament was in the London 1883 tournament.Free PowerPoint Backgrounds http://www.bellogamesnewyork.com
