What are the correct placements for the King and Queen set up on the board? I've heard things like, "white on the right and queen on her own colour" and "kings must not be facing each other." I'm sure its just an exact mirror on both sides; am I correct in placing the white square on the right and Queen on her own colour?
Each player has a white square on their near right corner. The queen goes on the square of her own color; as a result, the kings and queens face each other.
