Determine the color of the square
The Chess Coordinates Color Exercise is a great way to memorize the colors of each square
of the chessboard.
Start by clicking the 'New Game' button.
A letter and number will pop up on the screen, representing the coordinates of a square on
the chessboard. You have to click the color of that square.
After you click a color, another set of coordinates will pop up, and you will
need to repeat the process.
After each question, the coordinates will be listed below the timer. If you got the answer
right they will show up in white, otherwise they will show up in grey.
You get one point for every correct answer, and you lose one point for every incorrect answer.
You have 30 seconds to get as high a score as possible. Good luck!
