congress: c.1400, “body of attendants; also “meeting of armed forces” (mid-15c.); main modern sense of “coming together of people, a meeting” is from 1520s; from L. congressus “a friendly meeting; a hostile encounter,” pp. of congredi “meet with, fight with,” from com- “together” (see com-) + gradi “to walk,” from gradus “a step” (see grade).

Congress is a variation of the game Chess. Congress shares all the rules of Chess with one important difference: on his or her turn a player can choose to move a piece of either color so long as the piece was not moved on his or her opponents most recent turn. Movement, capture, and victory still operate as in traditional Chess.
