Chess is a two-player strategy boardgameplayed on a chessboard, a checkered gameboard with 64squaresarranged in an eight-by-eight grid. Chess is played bymillions ofpeople worldwide, both amateurs and professionals.

Chess is played on a square board of eight rows (called ranksanddenoted with numbers 1 to 8) and eight columns (called filesanddenoted with letters a to h). The colors of the 64 squaresalternateand are referred to as "light" and "dark" squares. Thechessboard isplaced with a light square at the right-hand end ofthe rank nearestto each player.

By convention, the game pieces are divided into white andblacksets, and the players are referred to as "White" and"Black"respectively. Each player begins the game with 16 pieces ofthespecified color, which consist of one king, one queen, tworooks,two bishops, two knights, and eight pawns. The pieces are setoutas shown in the diagram and photo, with each queen on a squareofits own color, the white queen on a light square and theblackqueen on a dark.

The player with the white pieces always moves first. Afterthefirst move, players alternately move one piece per turn (exceptforcastling, when two pieces are moved). Pieces are moved to eitheranunoccupied square or one occupied by an opponent's piece, whichiscaptured and removed from play. With the sole exception ofenpassant, all pieces capture by moving to the square thattheopponent's piece occupies. A player may not make any movethatwould put or leave his or her king under attack. A playercannot"pass"; at each turn they have to make a legal move (this isthebasis for the finesse called zugzwang).

If the player to move has no legal move, the game is over; itiseither a checkmate (a loss for the player with no legal moves)ifthe king is under attack, or a stalemate (a draw) if the kingisnot.

Each chess piece has its own style of moving. In thediagrams,the dots mark the squares where the piece can move if nootherpieces (including one's own piece) are on the squares betweenthepiece's initial position and its destination.

Games may be won in the following ways:

Resignation – either player may resign, conceding the game totheother player.[7] It is usually considered poor etiquette to playonin a truly hopeless position, and for this reason high levelgamesrarely end with a checkmate.
Loss on time – in games with a time control, a player may alsoloseby running out of time, even with a much superiorposition.
Forfeit – a player who cheats, or violates the rules of the game,orviolates the rules specified for the particular tournament maybeforfeited. In high level tournaments, players have beenforfeitedfor such things as arriving late for the game (even by amatter ofseconds), receiving a call or text on a cell phone,refusing toundergo a drug test, refusing to undergo a body searchforelectronic devices and unsporting behavior (such as refusingtoshake the opponent's hand).

Ludo, Mensch ärgere dich nicht 16 APK
Klapa Games
Mensch ärgere dich nicht is a German boardgame (but not a German-style board game), developed by JosefFriedrich Schmidt in 1907/1908.The game was issued in 1914 and sold about 70 million copies,driven by huge popularity among German troops serving in World WarI. It is a cross and circle game with the circle collapsed onto thecross, similar to the Indian game Pachisi, the Colombian gameParqués, the American games Parcheesi, Aggravation, and Trouble,and the English game Ludo.The name of the game literally translates to "Man, don't getannoyed", though Mensch is gender neutral. The name derives fromthe fact that a peg is sent back to the "out" field when anotherpeg lands on it, similar to the games Sorry! and Trouble.The game can be played by 2, 3 or 4 players – one player per boardside. Each player has 4 game pieces, which are in the "out" areawhen the game starts, and which must be brought into the player's"home" row. Early games had painted wooden pieces.The rows are arranged in a cross pattern. They are surrounded andconnected with a circle of fields, over which the game pieces movein clockwise direction. There are 3 fields nearest to each side ofthe board; the left one is the player's "start" field (marked "S")and the middle one leads to the "home" row.This means that each game piece enters the circle at the "start"field, moves (clockwise) over the board and finally enters the"home" row. The first player with all of their pieces in their"home" row wins the game.The players throw a die in turn and can advance any of their piecesin the game by the thrown number of dots on the die.Throwing a six means bringing a piece into the game (by placing onefrom the "out" area onto the "start" field) and throwing the dieagain. In some variants, a player who has no pieces in the game hasthree tries to throw a six. If a piece is on the "start" field andthere are still pieces in the "out" area, it must be moved as soonas possible. If a piece cannot be brought into the game then anyother piece in the game must be moved by the thrown number, if thatis possible.Pieces can jump over other pieces, and throw out pieces from otherplayers (into that player's "out" area) if they land on them. Aplayer cannot throw out his own pieces though, and cannot advancefurther than the last field in the "home" row. A player cannot bethrown out if he is on his "start" field.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mensch_%C3%A4rgere_dich_nicht

Klapa Games
Snakes and Ladders is an ancient Indian boardgame regarded today as a worldwide classic. It is played betweentwo or more players on a gameboard having numbered, griddedsquares. A number of "ladders" and "snakes" are pictured on theboard, each connecting two specific board squares. The object ofthe game is to navigate one's game piece, according to die rolls,from the start (bottom square) to the finish (top square), helpedor hindered by ladders and snakes respectively.The game is a simple race contest based on sheer luck, and ispopular with young children. The historic version had root inmorality lessons, where a player's progression up the boardrepresented a life journey complicated by virtues (ladders) andvices (snakes).GameplayEach player starts with a token on the starting square (usually the"1" grid square in the bottom left corner, or simply, off the boardnext to the "1" grid square) and takes turns to roll a single dieto move the token by the number of squares indicated by the dieroll. Tokens follow a fixed route marked on the gameboard whichusually follows a boustrophedon (ox-plow) track from the bottom tothe top of the playing area, passing once through every square. If,on completion of a move, a player's token lands on thelower-numbered end of a "ladder", the player must move the token upto the ladder's higher-numbered square. If the player lands on thehigher-numbered square of a "snake" (or chute), the token must movedown to the snake's lower-numbered square.If a player rolls a 6, the player may, after moving, immediatelytake another turn; otherwise play passes to the next player inturn. The player who is first to bring their token to the lastsquare of the track is the winner.Features:- Classic board game Snakes and Ladders- Up to 5 people on one device- Nice graphics designhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snakes_and_Ladders
