Welcome to Chess Kenya.

Chess is a two-player board game played on a checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an 8×8 grid. At the start, each player controls sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two bishops, two knights, and eight pawns. White moves first, followed by Black. The game is won by checkmating the opponent’s king, i.e. threatening it with inescapable capture. There are also several ways a game can end in a draw.

Chess is one of the oldest and most popular board games in the world, with a history dating back over 1,500 years. It is a game of strategy and tactics and requires players to think ahead and plan their moves carefully.

Today, chess is enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds in Kenya. It is a popular recreational activity and a competitive sport. The Kenya Chess Federation is responsible for organizing and promoting chess in the country.
