Each player starts the game with 16 pieces: a king, a queen, two crooks, two knights, two bishops and eight paws. Each of the six pieces runs separately. The most powerful piece is the queen and the most powerful piece is the pawn.
The aim is to'checkmate' the opponent's king, who puts him under an unavoidable threat of capture. To this end, a player's pieces are used to attack and hold the opponent's pieces while they support themselves. In addition to the checkmate, the game can be won by a voluntary resignation by the opponent, which usually occurs when too much material is lost, or if the checkmate appears to be unavoidable.
A game can also have a draw in many ways. Chess is believed to have originated in India, derived from the Indian game of Chaturanga, sometime before the 7th century.
