For centuries, chess has been a game tool for scholars and wise men. The fun of it cannot be explained in a word. Chess requires a certain talent, but its winning or losing is not limited by age. A complete set of chess mainly includes a professional chess board and chess set pieces.

You will be surprised by the following chess facts.

1. The longest chess game took 5949 moves.

5. The longest chess problem, with 290 moves, is the credit of Otto Blassy (1886-1939).

6. The word "Checkmate" often used in chess is derived from the Persian word "Shah Mat". It means "the king is dead". If you fall into this situation, it means that your king is facing a threat from the opponent's pieces. You must remove the threat immediately.

There are three methods to choose from:

Withdraw King from the threat area and move to a safe place.

Take the general's chess piece.

Use your other chess pieces to block the king. But this trick doesn't work for horses and soldiers (or rear, carts, and elephants that are attacking personally).
