Chess is a two-player strategy board game played on a chessboard, a checkered gameboard with 64 squares arranged in an 8×8 grid. The game is played by millions of people worldwide. Chess is believed to have originated in India sometime before the 7th century. The game was derived from the Indian game chaturanga, which is also the likely ancestor of the Eastern strategy games xiangqi, janggi, and shogi. (A minority view holds that chess originated in China.) Chess reached Europe by the 9th century, due to the Moorish conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. The pieces assumed their current powers in Spain in the late 15th century; the rules were standardized in the 19th century.
The Lithuanian Chess Federation, in cooperation with the “Šviesa” publishing house, has started implementing the “Chess in Schools” initiative. So far, this pilot project will be tested by forty Lithuanian schools. We are very excited to have class 1e together with our teacher Gabriele!
Draughts is played by two opponents, on opposite sides of the gameboard. One player has the dark pieces; the other has the light pieces. Players alternate turns. A player may not move an opponent’s piece. A move consists of moving a piece diagonally to an adjacent unoccupied square. If the adjacent square contains an opponent’s piece, and the square immediately beyond it is vacant, the piece may be captured (and removed from the game) by jumping over it.
Only the dark squares of the checkered board are used. A piece may move only diagonally into an unoccupied square. Capturing is mandatory in most official rules, although some rule variations make capturing optional when presented.In almost all variants, the player without pieces remaining, or who cannot move due to being blocked, loses the game.

The game for two: the battle of the ships.
This is an old but good game for one or two players. You need to test your forces in the battle of ships. The first player chooses the positions of his ships and routes the ships so that they do not interfere with each other and are the main rule in the battle of the ships. When you complete the boarding, then give your opponent a friend to set up your own ships. He is subject to the same rules of the battle of the ships: to let the ships not interfere with each other, and then to guess where the hid friends are. You will win the one who first hits and destroys the friend’s and opponent’s ships.
