At the beginning of the game, you need to remember that the chessboard needs to be placed

in such a manner that each player has the light colored square on the bottom right hand

side.

Regarding the pieces, the second row for each side is filled with pawns just like this.

And the first row should be setup as follows.

The rooks belong to the corner squares.

And now moving inward, the knights belong next to the rooks.

Yes, this is called a knight & not a horse.

Then next to the knights, we have our bishops.

After this, we place our queens on her matching color, which means the white queen goes on

a white square and the black queen goes on a black square.

And then finally, we place the king on the remaining square.

If the board is set up correctly, each piece will be facing one another.
