Chess is one of the oldest board games. To play it, they use an 8X8 board, drawn into black and white squares, and a set of figures 16 white and 16 black. Players have 8 pawns each, a pair of horses, bishops and rooks, as well as a king and a queen (queen). The goal is to checkmate the opponent’s king or ensure that he surrenders himself.
With the development of computers, authors of computer toys could not ignore this ancient game. The first versions were very weak, a mid-level player could easily do away with them.
