Chess is a Complicated Game With a Simple Goal

Like many people, my love of chess was rekindled after watching Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit late last year.

My wife and I (and our 5-year-old son) soon were all playing each other daily, watching YouTube videos of strategy and tactics, and playing with other avid players around the world (thank you chess.com).

Chess is a relatively easy game to learn. Each side has 6 unique pieces, 32 in total, across 64 black and white squares. Each piece may move a certain way. Whoever captures the King first, wins. That’s it.
