The only pieces that can make the first move in a chess game are the pawns and knights. Therefore, each side has 12 moves available. These are one possible for each of the eight pawns, and two each for both knights.
In 1889 , Wilhelm Steinitz who was the 1st World Chess Champion wrote that in all international and public Chess matches/tournaments it is the rule for the first player to have the white side and the first move . Since then white always starts the game .

In an official game of chess, the pieces are coloured black and white. White moves first, and his pieces occupy ranks 1 and 2, with the white queen on a white square to the left of the white king. If the pieces are unusual colours (red and black is common, as are novelty shaped pieces that represent TV characters) then set up the pieces as normal, with the queens opposite each other, and whoever's queen is on the left side of their king moves first.
Since a stalemate is a draw game, in tournament chess or scoring chess, each side would score half a point.
He moves two spaces if castling on his own side, and three if castling on the queen's side.
