KQA - Chess Terminology - Chess Glossary Screencapture

Our Chess Glossary is an excellent a-to-z reference of common Chess Terms. This should be your 'first stop', if you're unsure about a Chess Term.

Our Chess Glossary Team, however, are totally unruly and loose-tongued when it comes to the entries. But they were cheaper than students, so they got the gig.

Use the 'quick links', to jump to a Glossary section (A-Z), or you can do a bit more manual labor and scroll down the page, as normal.

When you get to an entry, you'll find the Chess Term and, immediately beneath it, a short Description ...
