Chess’ rules are legendarily complicated, to the point where many people don’t play simply because they claim not to be able to remember how all the pieces move. Once you get to grip with what everything is and what it can do, however, the rules don’t look so complicated after all.
A theory regarding the story behind the design of some of the current chess pieces are as follows: Pawns – First line of defense and represented the peasants from a court. Considered expendable as the game was built around protection of the court. It is said that during the phase of medieval chess the pawns were generally named relating to peasants occupations.

Some games depend totally on your ability to come up with strategies, build on your previous strategy, and create more advanced strategies. Chess games require you to think on your feet, and to modify your strategy every time your opponent makes a move. There are some board games that require no decision making skills, these depend on luck, and are usually children’s games such as chutes and Ladders or Sorry. Adult gamers prefer games that make them decide on something and prefer games where the manufacturer designs the game to depend on both luck and strategy, such as Monopoly and Risk. While there are many other considerations, when choosing your board game, but each game was made to keep you entertained so you can play any games.

The idea behind the Semi-Slav Defense is to play dxc4 and then protect it with b5 which after the move c6 is now protected from the knight. Black’s pawn structure in the Semi-Slav tends to be rather solid although white is always trying to undermine it. Just glancing at it you will notice the defined pawn barrier with the pawns c6, d5, and e6. The Semi-Slav Defense is a good opening choice, especially for players that like to win a pawn and then sit on it until the endgame.
