Description

This is the simplest book ever written on how to play chess. Part one deals only with how the chessmen move and capture; the objects of the game; check and checkmate; and the values of the different chessmen. Everything is described step by step, with plenty of examples, simple exercises and diagrams at every stage. Part two is an introduction to the main ways in which the chessmen can be used to win your opponent's pieces. Again, the many examples, with diagrams, illustrate the most commonly used variations. There is just enough in this book to enable you to play your first few games of chess with a clear understanding of the way the chessmen move and the rules of the game. Whatever your age and whatever you knowledge of chess, this is the self-tutor to get your started.
