    Proper positioning of the chessboard and the players is just as important as the technicalities and rules that govern chess playing. Before the game begins, each player must ensure that they have a white square in the near right-hand corner of the board. Learn a simple rhyme to remember this rule, «white on the right». Ask your child to check all the pictures showing the kids sitting at the chessboard in the right way.
