When you start the game, the chessboard is placed so that each player has white (or light colored) box in the lower right corner. Chessmen are always placed in the same way. The second row consists of pawns. The towers are placed at the ends, then horses, bishops and finally the queen, who is always placed in the box of their color (white queen in white square, black queen on black square) and King in the box remaining. 

The player who plays with white pieces will make the first move.

After making the first move, tap Share and send a notification to your opponent.
