Default Chess

Chess is a turn based board game for two players. It was found in Persia, but evolved over the years. The latest official changes were made in Spain. Like Shogi, Makruk and Xiangqi, it probably evolved from the Indian game Chaturanga.
The game board consists of 64 black and white squares, arranged in eight columns and eight lines. The lines are marked with the numbers 1-8 and the columns are marked with the letters A-H. The line numbering starts at the base line of the player, who plays white. The column numbering starts with the column at the left side of the game board from the perspective of the player, who plays white.
Each player has eight pawns, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, one Queen and one King. The initial setup is equal every game. Each piece kind moves in a different habit, for example the rooks can move vertically and horizontally while the bishop moves diagonally. You can't move your pieces to fields occupied by your own pieces. When you move it to a field occupied by an opponent's piece, you capture that piece. You win when you checkmate your opponent, which means you are one turn away from capturing your opponent's king and your opponent can't prevent it.
The game is turn based. The player who plays white starts. During your turn, you move one of your pieces. Then it is your opponents turn to move one of his/her pieces. The game ends when one player wins, when a player can't move any more but isn't given check, and when the game turns endless, for example because both players only have their Kings left. When you play with a time limit, it also ends when the time is up. In that case the player, whose time is up, loses.
Each player has total information. They know where which piece is standing and how much time which player has, so you can't bluff. There is no luck element implied in this game (you don't throw dices or draw cards).

All that really needs to be said on the matter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RHLtx9r2LA

Also, "dice" is already the plural of "die". There is no such word as "dices".

oh, thank you. I thought dice was singular.

yeah, I know, non of what I said was really any new information to any of you, but I noticed there wasn't any thread for chess yet and so I thought this was a good way to start it.

about the video: I liked it when it said it was first played on nintendo. but when it became insulting it wasn't any more. "shit" isn't a funny word.

"Shit", like every other word in the english language, can be funny when used in a certain way. Such as how it was used in the video. Also, there is nothing unsulting about the video. There isn't a serious word in it. And don't be one of those people who gets pissy whenever they hear a swear word.

And the dice thing is understandable. The word "die" is rarely used, and "dice" will often be used to mean both the singular and the plural.

1. What does niveau mean?
2. No, humour based on swearing is not funny. But humour using swearing is perfectly valid, and swearing does not reduce comedic effect. Complaining about a single swear word just makes you sound like an elitist and over-sensitive cunt. Especially in the area of comedy.

urm, niveau is diffictult to explain. dictionary says "hight, level, standard" but that's not really what it means. it rather means it has no style.
there are so many good jokes in this world. why do you have to make one where you compare "chess" with "Schiss" instead of something actually funny? I am not saying swearing is evil and nobody should do it. I just don't get what's so funny about it. "haha, he said shit, that's hilarious."

what does all this have to do with chess?

That's not the joke though. The joke is he's trying to trasition chess into a negative word. And Shit is the closest he can get. What funny is how awkward he makes it, as with the majority of his comedy.

When I was a kid and I first learned, I remembered it by:

*White (square) on the right (corner) (to orient the board correctly)
*King and Queen are in the middle, but the Queen on her own color
*Bishops next to royalty because they were the most revered counselors
*Knights next because...
*Rooks on the outside edge like a castle wall
*And the pawns all go in front

I remember that the Queen of each side goes on their own color, and then just remember where all the other pieces go.

'Cause there's like 6 types of pieces.

I tried to learn how to play but never could get the hang of it

My math teacher in high school built a 3D chess board.

I never really put it into words until just now. It was just the thought process I used when I first learned it at age 5 or 6.

I love chess, and I know how to play it pretty well. The only problem I have is with the King.. I never really understood where it was allowed to move. I know that when your opponent checks you, you have to move it out of the way, but it seems that the spots you are allowed to move it change. I don't know, it's the only piece that gives me problems. :/

The King can move exactly one space in any given direction, but with a few exceptions.

It obviously can't move into a space that's already occupied by your own pieces.

It can't move into a space where an enemy piece could move immediately thereafter, as that would be putting yourself into Check.

It can castle with the rook, but only under certain conditions.

That's really all there is to it. Move one space in any of the 8 directions, but only if there isn't another of your own pieces already occupying that square and if doing so does not place you in Check.

my problem with the game is that there isn't so much creativity. at least not when you are a beginner. when you are skilled, you can invent own moves, but when you are a beginner, you should stick to the books.

Seto, we need to play a children's card game once.

As long as there is no Seal of Orechalous, Black Rose plays that almost every time and I can never win.
