Games are defined as “a collection of human mental activities designed to enhance the ability to use memory, problem solving, and strategy” by psychologists Carl Jung and John Locke. A more literal definition would be “a physical activity requiring physical exertion.” The word “games” comes from the Greek word “gamma”, which meant “pot”. In modern times, games are played using electronic devices such as video games, computer games, consoles, and the like.
The object of the game is for players to manipulate a digital object (the chess board for example) in order to achieve a set goal. In games involving physical skill, players use one or more of their pieces (pawns) to do the physical work. For example, in chess, a player can move his pawn forward, attack another player’s piece, or back. Likewise, a player can move his pawn into a protected area, make a checkmate, or use a variety of other chess tricks. But these actions can only be done if the player has at least one other player’s piece within reach.
The two major types of games areitaire and solitaire. In a two player game, each player performs all of his or her individual functions, without considering the interaction of any other players. Examples of this include card games such as Solitaire, Freecell, and Scrabble. In contrast, in a four player game, each player simultaneously performs all of his or her individual functions, while considering the interaction of all other players.
This article will focus on the strategic aspects of board games. Board games involve a variety of strategies, and each player employs a unique strategy according to the nature of the game. The main article will therefore examine two main elements of the strategy: chance and skill. Although the information here is not formal, this information is considered factual and can be used by other players or chess enthusiasts to develop their own strategy based on their analysis.
Chance strategy is a type of strategy, where the outcome of a series of events is unrelated to the prior set up or set of action. For instance, in a Crawford game, all pieces that enter the board may enter at random. However, all of the pieces that do not enter the board will remain on the board even if they do arrive. Therefore, all pieces, including the bishop, must be carefully evaluated to determine their value before being put into play, according to the current set up.
Another important element of the strategy is the ability to accumulate resources. Resources are usually gained from certain points on the board. For example, a player can gain resources by making a series of captures and can likewise lose these same resources by making a series of captures without making any. Players can also accumulate and save resources through the mutual provision of cards, which can then be exchanged between players.
