Chess is a board game that has been played for over 5000 years. It is considered to be one of the oldest games in the world.
In the West, chess became popular among aristocrats and royalty in the 16th century, but it was not until the 19th century that attempts to standardize rules and time settings occurred.
The player with the white pieces always moves first; the player with the black pieces moves second. The objective of this game is to capture your opponent’s king piece by checkmating the king.
