Fight the battle

Two armies poised and ready.
Rules of war clearly defined.
Battlefield void of emotion.

You move first.
Your opponent follows.
The dance goes back and forth.

Strategy. Confidence. Skill.
No room for error.
Mistakes are costly.

One objective. Capture the King.
One goal. Stay alive.
Attack. Defend. Attack. Defend.

Protect the army.
Move in unison.
Know the strength of your men.

Capitalize on mistakes made by the opponent.
Exploit their weakness as they would do the same.
The battle is fought in your mind.

Fight the battle.
Celebrate the victory.
The King rewards you for your efforts.
