Games, Does anyone know how to play Chess?

1-the Game of Chess copy

Last week I  took a photograph of this sculpture of a chessboard and its pieces in a courtyard. Do many people play the game of chess here? Maybe the next time I’ll ask.  In the meantime, I’m busy editing Book 2 in the Adventures with Easton series and this sculpture reminds me of a conversation that takes place between two nine-year old boys  in Chapter 7.

Now,  I wonder if I have told the reader enough about the game of chess or should I add more details other than there are sixty-four squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid on the chessboard and two sets of sixteen pieces? The object of the game is to attack and capture the king. And, the game is over when one of player checkmates the other.

Who knows how to play the game?
