How are the chess pieces put on the board?

Take sure that a white square is in the lower right of the board first. Then place a rook (a.k.a. castle) in that square. On the adjacent black square next to the rook, place a knight, next to that a bishop, then, if you are playing as white, place the king, or if you are playing as black, place your queen. Remember, the queen always is placed on the same color as you are playing. (The black queen on a black square, and the white on white.) Then place the white king next to the white queen, and the black king next to the black queen. Complete the back row with bishop, knight, then rook. On the second row place all eight pawns.
