Chessboard and Grains Classic Story:

Once upon a time a clever con artist who made ornate chessboards had the chance to make one for the king. Though the king fancied himself wise, he was not so clever with numbers.

When the chessboard was complete, the con artist told the king “I do not want payment in gold or jewels. Simply place one grain of rice on the first square, two on the second, four on the third, doubling each time up to the 64th square.”

Seeing no harm in this, the king agreed, thinking it a modest amount of rice. But as the counting progressed, the numbers exploded. By the end of just the 8th square, the requirement was over 250 grains. The king realized his mistake too late.

In the second row, the numbers became astronomical. By square 16, over 65,000 grains were needed. By square 20, over a million. By the 30th square, the requirement exceeded a billion grains. The king’s mathematicians calculated the final total would be around 18 quintillion grains – more rice than existed in the world.

The conniving con artist then offered to forgive the debt in exchange for a reasonable payment in gold and land. The king reluctantly agreed, having learned a harsh lesson about deceit and the power of exponential growth. From then on, the phrase “grains on a chessboard” became a popular expression referring to the dangers of making hasty promises involving numbers.

The chessboard consists of 64 squares arranged in an 8×8 grid of alternating light and dark squares. The rows running vertically are called “files” while the rows running horizontally are called “ranks”.

Each player starts with 16 pieces of either white or black color. The pieces include 8 pawns, 2 knights, 2 bishops, 2 rooks, 1 queen and 1 king. Every piece has its own unique patterns of movement:

Pawns – Move forward to an unoccupied square. They capture diagonally by moving to a square occupied by an opponent’s piece.

Knights – Move in an L-shape, 2 squares in one direction and 1 square perpendicular. They can leap over other pieces.

Bishops – Move any number of squares diagonally in a straight line until blocked.

Rooks – Move any number of squares horizontally or vertically in a straight line.

Queen – Combines the movements of a bishop and a rook, moving any number of squares in any diagonal, horizontal or vertical direction.

King – Moves only 1 square in any direction, horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Typically, the player with the white pieces makes the opening move. Players must move on their turn and cannot make any move that places their king in check. The game ends when one king is checkmated, meaning it is under attack and unable to escape capture.
