A chessboard has 8x8 fields, 64 overall. On each field one chess piece can be placed. It is the goal of the game to attack the opponent's king ("check"), so he would be captured in the next move ("check mate"). If it is no check and the opponent can't move any piece without causing a check, one calls it a "stalemate".
The player make their moves one after the other. On a chessboard the pieces have to arranged in a way the white queen is placed on a white field ("white queen, white field"). Black has the other site and is second-order, so White can make his move first.
Only the Knight can jump over other pieces. All other pieces can only be moved over free fields or can capture an opponent's piece. A short introduction in the chess pieces:
♚ King: 1 field in every direction, after move he may not be attacked by any opponent's piece
♛ Queen: Until the next piece in one of the following directions: diagonal, horizontal, vertical
♝ Bishop: Until the next piece on its diagonal lines
♞ Knight: Can jump over other pieces, until 8 possible fields he can move to, move pattern: 1 field diagonal and 1 field straight, but the target field may not be directly next to the old field.
♜ Rook: Until the next piece horizontal or vertical
♟ Pawn: Moving him its first time, you can move him two fields straight forward, otherwise he may be moved only one field straight if this is empty or one field diagonal to capture a opponent's piece on this field. If a pawn reaches the opponent's base line, the pawn may be promoted into any other piece (but not a king of course).
