How to arrange chess?

Chess - one of the oldest games of the world, the origins of which go to ancient India. Having clear rules, the game is quite complex, requiring analytical skills and a mathematical type of mind. Learning to play chess should be with the arrangement of figures. How to arrange chess correctly?

Place the figures

We start with pawns, which in the chess set includes eight pieces of each color. We build pawns along the second line of our side of the board from A7 (A2) to H7 (H2). On the outermost cells of the nearest line A8 (A1) and H8 (H2), put the rooks. Then horses will take their place. Each of them is located on the second cell from the edge of the nearest line, in other words, on B8 (B1) and G8 (G1) cells. After the horses we are looking for a place for a figure called an officer or a tour. These figures take up positions near the queen and the king, that is, on the C8 (C1) and F8 (F1) cells.

King and queen

Their place is in the center of the location, on the D8 (D1) and E8 (E1) cells. The queen (queen) is placed on the square corresponding to the color of the figure. So the place of the white queen is the position of Е8 or D1, the place of black is the cell Е1 or D8.
