How to make a Chess Board(Not the mechanics)

Im going to show you how to make a chessboard and the pieces that go along with it. Im also going to try and make the actual game but thats going to take a while . Lets start this tutorial.
Step 1:
Place 4 blocks down with one space between each one. It dosent matter what type of block you use as long as it is the same color. I used dark scraps for this.

Step 2:
Place another 4 blocks a row ahead of the first row but alternating like shown in the picture below.

Step 3:
Repeat this for 4 times until you have something that looks like this

Step 4:
Fill in all of the empty spaces with a different colored tile. I chose light scraps for this.

Step 5:
Place a text device and change the text to the emoji chess piece. Place the emoji on the board like this. You can get the emoji chess pieces at the bottom of this guide or by searching it up online

Step 6:
Finish placing the chess pieces. If you dont know where the pieces go you can search it up or you can look at this finished piece below.

This is a community guide and a wip. I am going to try and make the actual game soon. I hoped you liked this guide!
I have now fixed the board!
Emojis Used: White Pieces:♔♕♗♘♖♙|| Black Pieces:♚♛♝♞♜♟
Thank you to @CringeKarlScott for telling me to add the emojis here. Huge thanks to @Blackhole927 for the emojis!
Credit to @CassiusDoomlorde and @Cameron_Sharer for both telling me what went wrong with the board.

I’m just procrastinating… right now I’m in hyperstudy mode doing literally nothing but studying for school.

Math = easy
Chinese = hard
English = annoying

Chess is actually going pretty well, I just have to program in:

Checks
Checkmate
Stalemate
Castling
En Passant
Pawn Promotion
Turns

Do you guys even see what you are doing?!? This doesn’t even have to do with anything close to this guide!!! Do this on the wix or discourse.

You could have the player to input the x and y coordinates, instead of having a button for each position.

Yes, but that’s less intuitive.
