Games: Chess Game Rules
Chess is one of the oldest games played in the world. It is a game requiring great skill and intelligence, and world champions have often pondered over moves for several days.
Joining the Game
The first player to join is designated the 'leader' and uses the white pieces. The second player uses the black pieces.
The leader decides which type of game will be played:
Each player's screen has a clock indicating how much time and how many moves they have left.
Movement of Pieces
If an illegal square is chosen, an 'error' sound effect will be triggered. The sound effect will be deactivated when the piece is chosen again. The cursor will change form when a legal destination square has been located.
When a legal destination square has been chosen, the piece will be moved automatically, and it will be the other player's turn.
When castling, a second piece is moved in addition to the first piece (the castling maneuver is executable by moving the King, or the Castle).
The declarations "Check" and "Mate" will appear automatically when a player takes his/her opponent's King, or when a player wins a game.
The declaration of "Mate" will also trigger sound FX and visual animation.
The declarations of one player will appear in the 'pop-up' window of the second player. The second player can either accept or reject declarations of "Surrender" or "Draw".
Conclusion of the Game
Players may stop/continue voice effects by pressing the Sound FX button.. "What a Loser".
