Beginning Chess Lessons: Part 2 : The Objective of a Chess Game


Hello. John Livingstone, Expert Village. This
is my Chess series. I showed you previously the basic moves of the game. And, now there’s
going to, now, I’m going to cover some of the other important points that you do need
to know. And, firstly, something which is very important, what is the object of the
game. The object of the game is to capture the opponent’s King, that’s what it’s all
about; the capture of the King. Chess is not like Checkers, it’s not a question of getting
all of the material. You could be in a situation where you had only four pieces on the board
and your opponent had twelve, but you could still win, if you can capture his King, so
that is what it is all about. And, I mentioned earlier that the King does have a unique roll
and the unique roll is that you cannot afford to lose your King, because if you lose your
King, that’s the end of the game right there and then; no matter what else may be going
on. So, at all times bear in mind two things, the importance of keeping your own King in
a safe position and watch out for opportunities to attack and capture the opponent’s King.
