The Rules of Chess - Bruce Pandolfini


Section One: General Rules

1. Chess is a game of skill played by two people on a board of sixty-four squares. The board is the same one used for checkers.

2. The squares of the chessboard are alternately colored light and dark and that helps the players see better.

3. The players, starting at opposite ends of the board, take turns by moving their own armies, one soldier on a turn.

4. Each army or side consists of sixteen soldiers. In common parlance these forces are referred to as the pieces.



5. Indeed, a chess set is ordinarily said to have a board and pieces. Yet chess players prefer to distinguish between pieces and pawns for a variety of practical reasons.

6. So herein unit will be used to mean either an individual piece or pawn.

    A ridiculously bad book. While Pandolfini has a great reputation in this book he should be ashamed. The book does not explain CASTLING, which is one of the core moves in chess. All books of instruction say that a player must try to castle as early in the game as possible, primarily for King safety. Not worth the paper it is printed on. While it does an ok job of explaining some concepts, this omission is damning. Don't buy it.
