How to Play

The main aim of the game is to capture the opponent’s king by putting it in ‘check’ - a condition where the king is threatened by an enemy piece and must take steps to escape it or else be captured. The game is played on an 8x8 board with 16 pieces on each end of the board. The pieces can be moved across the board in certain ways, each having its own characteristics. The player using the white pieces moves first and the players take turns moving until the king is captured, or until the game is ended in a draw.


Each player starts the game with 16 pieces, arranged in a certain way on the board. The pieces are categorized by their value as follows: The King, the Queen, two Rooks, two Knights, two Bishops, and eight Pawns. The players start the game with different pieces, but the pieces on the board are always arranged in the same way. The pieces can only move in certain directions as determined by their value and certain moves are restricted by rules.

Movement of Pieces

For each turn, the player can move one of their pieces on the board. Each piece can move a certain number of squares, in a certain way and to a certain direction. Pawns, for example, can move two squares forward on the first turn, but after that can only move one square forward. The Rook, on the other hand, can move straight in any direction, for a certain number of squares, as long as it does not cross over another piece. All pieces move in different ways, depending on their value.

Winning the Game

The game is won when one of the players manages to put the other player’s king in ‘check’, a condition in which the king is threatened by an enemy piece and must take steps to escape it or else be captured. If no move can be made to escape the check, the player is considered to have lost the game and the other player is declared the winner. If both players have their kings in check, or the same piece is put in check multiple times without movement, the game is considered a draw.


Chess 2D is a game that depends solely on player skill and strategy and not on luck or chance. Players must plan out their movements carefully and think several steps ahead in order to outsmart the other player and win the game. Strategy plays a big part in the game and different pieces should be moved differently depending on the situation. For example, knights move in an L shape, so they should be moved in a way that prevents the opponent from being able to take them.

Time Limit

Most games in Chess 2D have a time limit of 10 minutes for each player to make a move. This is meant to ensure that the game does not drag on for too long and players move their pieces in a timely manner. If players are taking too long in making their moves, they will be warned with a message and can be disconnected from the game if they fail to make a move in the given time limit.


Chess 2D also offers players a variety of options to customize their gaming experience. Players can choose to play against random opponents or select a friend from their list. They can also choose from a variety of game settings such as time limit, number of moves per round, difficulty level, and more.
