Author Maxen Tarafaabout this book: How to Play Chess for Beginners is the average, every day person's guide to chess rules, chess setup, chess strategies and chess moves. Whether you're playing chess with friends at home or you're teaching the fundamentals of how to play chess for kids, with this easy, illustrated guide you'll find the easiest way to learn Chess!

What is this book about?
This book contains everything a beginner needs to play chess and win. It's different from most books in that I speak about playing Chess with my friends and family, not in clubs or tournaments. But I'll call out some of the specific details that aren't usually listed.

Learn How to Setup the Chess board - chess board layout and chess board setup

When you're starting out, you need the absolute fundamentals. You'll learn the chess board layout, so you know what it looks like to begin with. You'll also learn my mind hacking techniques for quick Chess board setup.

Chess Piece Moves - Chess Pawn rules and Chess King Moves

The Pawn and King are some of the hardest chess pieces to know how to move. Unlike most chess books, I explain how each chess piece moves, especially the Pawn and King, in great detail - with illustrated diagrams and tips on remembering it. I also break down the mysterious chess castling rules.

Basic Chess Strategy - How to Win Chess

When you're talking about how to win chess for beginners, you're usually talking about chess checkmate and chess endgame. Checkmate is moving your opponent's King into a corner and putting him into a place where he is attacked and can't move. Endgame is the last phase of the game where you're attempting to checkmate him.

But, here's a free tip, neither endgame nor checkmate is useful if you don't know the best chess openings for beginners. If you lose the opening, you've already lost the game. Some openings are easier for beginners than others. In this book, I give you an introduction to openings and specific tips on which openings to use.

The chess boards and chess pieces

In this new expanded edition, I tackle one of the biggest problems of beginning chess players. Which boards and pieces should you buy and use. This is in the new chapter on my Chess FAQ.

Here's a free tip on chess boards, stick to the basics. Don't buy novelty boards or any board where you can't clearly see and distinguish the pieces.

What's different about your book? Why buy it?

Most chess books are written by academic chess players. Most of them can't remember what it was like to learn chess, so they use terminology and concepts too complicated for beginners. They also use chess notation.

What's chess notation?

It looks like this QxB6! or Ba7. If that looks like a foreign language to you, then my books at the perfect level for you.

Whether you're an absolute beginner or you just want to brush up on the fundamentals, this book is for you!

Thank you!
