Excerpt
Overview: Chess, unlike many other games, does not involve chance. It does not hinge on the roll of dice or which card is drawn. The outcome completely depends on the decisions of both the players. However, because of its vast complexity, the far-reaching consequences of some decisions are practically unforeseeable. One player (White) has the white pieces while the other (Black) has the black pieces. In friendly games the choice of colors can be made by any method, such as flipping a coin - if there is no coin at hand, another typical way of deciding would be to conceal a black piece in one hand and a white piece in the other and ask one's opponent to select a hand, the colored piece selected will be the opponent's color. In competitive games the players are assigned their colors.
