This is for all those people who have lost their rules sheet (there wasn't any in our first chess set) or just haven't learnt how to play and really want to learn now.
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".

Step 1: The Battlefield.
The chessboard is really a battlefield for the chessmen, and the chessmen your army (mentioned earlier)
Your chessboard is a standard black & white squared board with places for all the chessmen,
It is standard that the bottom right corner is a white square.
