I had not played chess in 40 years. It was a great refresher; covered all the rules in a straight-forward manner. Nice job.

I can't say this page is excellent, because it has the old F.I.D.E. Rules.

The description of castling mixes up the coordinates and the team colors according to the positioning diagram at the top of the page. It should read, 'When castling, the king moves two squares towards the rook, and the rook moves over the king to the next square, i.e., *black's* king on e*8* and rook on a*8* move to: king c*8*, rook d*8* (long castling), white's king on e1 and rook on h1 move to: king g1, rook f1 (short castling), and similar for black.

Thank you forthe rule information.

The information given employs an assumption of understanding prior to attempting the play. Using this page with young people who know nothing about the game, they found the descriptions of moves difficult to grasp. This also would apply to young children who's vocabulary does not reach the level of the words used. Perhaps a second version could be shown so these children could be taught too.

Easy and informative

You forgot to include a draw game when a player has a king with a lone bishop or a lone knight it is impossible to create a checkmate and therfore the game ends in a draw.

I was impressed with your display of rules and want to share it with a young man in our school who I suggested start a chess club. It has been a long time since I have played and am looking for site that will explain the tracking of your moves. I tried to explain that in competition that you record your moves (which he did not know) but I could not recall after 45 years just how to record moves. Would you be able to direct me to such a site or provide me with an explanation I can share with the students. Thank you for your assistance. our e-mail address (for you only) is [email protected] Thank You Wanda
