This short pamphlet is a beginner's guide to the royal game of chess. It was written to provide new chess players with basic information that will prepare them to play chess in any venue, whether it's a tournament or club or even just casual games with friends. It includes information on setting up the board and pieces, how the pieces move, understanding chess notation, and more.
Chess helps develop creative thinking, while also improving problem-solving and decision-making skills. It requires you to think, come up with a viable plan and carry it out, which is a microcosm of life.
Another element that makes chess a great game is that it doesn't matter what your skill level is; if your opponent is equal in strength, you'll always have fun playing.
