Chess is a game for two players. Each set of pieces is set out as shown, each queen on the square of her own colour. Players toss for colous, then move in turn, white always starting. The aim is to captuire (checkmate) the opponent's king. Draughts is also a two player game. Each player arranges their counters on the black squares on the board and black always goes first. The aim is to take your opponent's pieces or to trap them, so they cannot move.
