The following are the basic chess rules with very little modifications to suite TAGB requirements and bring commonality between the chess games played across the world.

Federation Internationale des Échecs (FIDE), also known as the World Chess Organization, sets certain standard rules, with slight modifications made by some national organizations for their own purposes. There are variations of the rules for fast chess, correspondence chess, online chess, and chess variants.The goal of 2017 TAGB Chess Championship is to checkmate, i.e. to threaten the opponent's king with inevitable capture. This game does not necessarily end with checkmate – players here often resign if they believe they will lose. In addition, there are several ways that a game can end in a draw.

In case of Dispute or Clarification Committee’s decision will be Final.
