When you start a Chess game, the bottom right corner SHOULD be a light square. If it is dark, you're actually playing on a checker board, so you'll need to rotate the board 90 degrees. Remember the saying in chess: 'white on right, queen on colour.' A checkerboard is the opposite of a chessboard. The lower right hand square is a dark square.
