From Chess For Dummies, 4th Edition. Unless you have amazing powers of visualization, chess requires a chess set and a board for you to play on. The chessboard is divided up into sections called ranks and files, and the set is composed of different chessmen with different movements and powers.

There are eight of each, and each is comprised of eight squares of equal size:. Ranks are rows that go from side to side across the chessboard and are referred to by numbers.

Each chessboard has eight ranks, which are numbered from the bottom of the board where the white pieces start on up. Files are columns that go up and down the chessboard, and each board has eight of them.

Because numbers indicate ranks, letters indicate files, which are labeled from left to right. The naming conventions for ranks and files allows you to give an identifier to every square by using what chess people call the file-first method.

For example, the lower right-hand square is called h1. This name is shorthand for h-file, first rank. Knowing the Moves that Chess Pieces Can Make Before you can play a game of chess, you need to know how to move the pieces legally.

Knights can move only in an L-shape, one square up and two over, or two squares over and one down, or any such combination of one-two or two-one movements in any direction.

Rooks can move any number of squares, up and down and side to side. Queens can move any number of squares along ranks, files and diagonals. Here are a few additional details on check, checkmate, and stalemate in chess:. An attack on a king by either an opposing piece or an opposing pawn is called check. When in check, a player must do one of the following:. If your king is checkmated, you lose the game. The term checkmate is commonly shortened to simply mate.

Stalemate is considered a draw. Neither player wins, but the game is over. A Collection of Brilliant Chess Endings.
