In chess the player who moves first is referred to as White and the player who moves second is referred to as Black . Similarly the pieces that each conducts are called respectively the white pieces and the black pieces . The pieces are often not literally white and black but some other colors usually a light color and a dark color respectively . The 64 squares of the chessboard which is colored in a checkered pattern are likewise referred to as white squares or light squares on the one hand and black squares or dark squares on the other. In most cases the squares are not actually white and black but a light color and a contrasting dark color. For example the squares on plastic boards are often off-white buff and green while those on wood boards are often light brown and dark brown. In old chess writings the sides are often called Red and Black because those were the two colors of ink then commonly available when hand-drawing or printing chess position diagrams.
