Chess is a two-player strategy board game played on a chessboard, a checkered gameboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. It is one of the world's most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide.

Artists as diverse as Marcel Duchamp, Vladimir Nabokov and Raymond Roussel have been chess enthusiasts. Hans Richter and Jean Cocteau dedicated a surrealist film to it called 8 × 8: A Chess Sonata in 8 Movements .
