In chess, the key is to move your chess pieces so that they block the king from being able to move any place. The king seems to be the most valuable piece in playing chess. The moves that the players make when playing a game are key. After moving the pieces several times, there are ways to win.

The player wants to move so that they will say, “checkmate.” Whenever a player says this, this really means that the game is over. Their opponent’s king can’t move in any direction without getting captured by the other player’s pieces. If you are playing chess and your opponent says “check,” that means your king is in danger, but if you hear the words “checkmate,” that means that you lost.
