Chess, a two-player strategy game, may appear simple to the casual observer, but its game board of 64 squares and 32 pieces can take a lifetime to master. The game itself originated in the sixth century, taking on a militaristic theme, which later evolved into the pieces of today: pawn, knight, bishop, rook, and, of course, the king and queen. The game is highly strategic and played around the world by lovers, young and old, of the genre. Each challenge is unique, and every player has his favorite move and cunning approach.
