Draw Chess Board Using Turtle in Python

  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2020

Prerequisite: Turtle Programming Basics

Turtle is an inbuilt module in Python. It provides drawing using a screen (cardboard) and turtle (pen). To draw something on the screen, we need to move the turtle (pen). To move turtle, there are some functions i.e forward(), backward(), etc.

For drawing Chess Board following steps are used :

  • Import turtle and making an object.
  • Set screen size and turtle position.
  • Define a method to draw a square
  • Call the method 8 times under another loop for 8 times with alternative color.
  • Hide the turtle object.

Below is the implementation :

python3




# import turtle package
import turtle 
   
# create screen object
sc = turtle.Screen()
   
# create turtle object
pen = turtle.Turtle()
   
# method to draw square
def draw():
   
  for i in range(4):
    pen.forward(30)
    pen.left(90)
   
  pen.forward(30)
   
  
     
# Driver Code
if __name__ == "__main__" :
      
    # set screen
    sc.setup(600, 600)
       
    # set turtle object speed
    pen.speed(100)
       
    # loops for board
    for i in range(8):
       
      # not ready to draw
      pen.up()
       
      # set position for every row
      pen.setpos(0, 30 * i)
       
      # ready to draw
      pen.down()
       
      # row
      for j in range(8):
       
        # conditions for alternative color
        if (i + j)% 2 == 0:
          col ='black'
       
        else:
          col ='white'
       
        # fill with given color
        pen.fillcolor(col)
       
        # start filling with colour
        pen.begin_fill()
       
        # call method
        draw()
        # stop filling
        pen.end_fill()
       
    # hide the turtle
    pen.hideturtle()
