In our modern world of technology and science, games have become increasingly popular over the past twenty years. These games range from computer games to video games, from children’s toys to interactive television programs, from massively multi-player online role playing games to board games. There is no limit to the variety of games that can be played, and with the exception of video games, virtually every form of gaming has been subjected to rapid development.
One of the most popular and often the most challenging game are chess, a main article of food in every household because of its appeal and simplicity. One of the first games to use Chess logic was Mental Chess, a game developed by Georgeidates, wherein players compete against each other using carefully calculated plans, each of which can be modified based on previous moves made by other players. In this game each player obtains a random set of four letters, and depending on the result of the current move, then it is possible to either go further ahead or move even further away from that original set of letters. As such, there are a finite number of different strategies available to each player.
Computer games must also follow game rules in order to remain balanced, and while a vast majority of games are purely computer generated these games must still follow a certain degree of strict logic, otherwise the game would be considered “unrealistic.” For example, if a player wishes to move their piece across the chess board, they must follow game rules in order to move that piece, and a pawn cannot move more than one square forward or backward without receiving a penalty. It is important that the moves remain logical so that there are no problems with the balance or the strategic situation of the game. Chess is very closely related to analysis and problem solving and in many ways is one of the best examples of how to use logic correctly in order to solve a problem.
