Image Description: A close up shot of the opening position of a chess game. Chess is one of the world's most popular games and is played in tournaments, online, in clubs, and in parks by millions of people around the world everyday. Each player begins the game with sixteen pieces; one king, one queen, two knights, two bishops, two rooks, and eight pawns, and each of these pieces moves differently. The object of the game is to checkmate the other player, meaning to place the opponent's king under inescapable capture. A draw is another possible ending to the game, where neither opponent wins. In rare cases, a game of chess can also end by voluntary resignation of the other opponent; this usually happens when too many pieces are lost or a checkmate is unavoidable.
