So you have (or need):
One chess board, this has 8squares by 8squares, the bottom right corner should be white, (etiquette)
32 "Chessmen" these fellows are your army, instead of the classics "red v blue" it's black v white, there are 16 white and 16 black chessmen.
Please note: All chess sets differ in some ways, especially the decorations of the pieces, but they usually share the same "shape".
