Chess is played on an eight by eight squared board with sixteen pieces per side

Chess is one of the most popular board games in the world and probably the most well-known. Chess is a battle of the mind, with two players competing against each other using wit, strategy and tactics with nothing left to chance.

Played on an eight-by-eight square board with 16 pieces per side, chess is deceptively simple but as mathematical analysis shows, the number of potential games is enormous - in fact, greater than the total number of atoms in the universe.

Chess requires the ability to think many moves ahead, but also a high level of intuition, which is why humans can still compete with computers. This is particularly the case in speed chess and blitz chess, when there is a restriction on the time allowed for a move.
