  1. How to set up the chessboard?

 

Chess is a game for two players. It is played on an 8x8 (64) squares board.

At the beginning of the game the chessboard is laid out so that each player has the white square in the bottom right-hand side. Each square has a name which is based on the coordinates. Note that, if you have a board with notation,  the bottom left corner (the A1 square ) should be a black square.

The vertical lines are called “files” while horizontal ones are called “ranks”.

Chess Trivia

The game of chess is similiar to the theatre


chess art theatre


Each chess playing piece has its own standing and role position on the game board. In the theatrical world, each actor and actress has a similar standing and role position on the stage. Performance is important. It can dictate success or failure.
 

Recently, theatrical actors, Cezar Koziński and Jan Englert performed their acting roles in the Polish stage play "Evidence The Other Exists" about the contrasting personalities of two authors, Witold Gombrowicz and Sławomir Mrożek, whom both redefined Polish literature in the 20th century.
 


The drama is set around their meetings in France and Italy during 1965 and 1966 where they would often play a game of chess. Our chess equipment was chosen for the scenes where the characters of Witold and Sławomir battled their wits against each other.
 

So as you can gather, our chess games can be played anywhere!
