First thing to learn?

Ive played chess alittle off and on since i was a kid altough nothing serious. Ive been wanting to start playing again and get a little more serious about it. I was wondering what people think the first steps to learning a good chess game is? Im not really sure the best place to begin other than just playing and playing. Should I be learning opening moves or something else? Possibly a good book?

Re: First thing to learn?

I think the best way to get into chess is joining a chess club. Its very good to start methodically right from the beginning. Unless you're very gifted, I don't think you'll get far just by playing (online) games.

When joining a chessclub people will suggest you the right books to read and you will get a good insight on other players training methods and way of thinking.

The first thing you should learn is how all the pieces move. Then you should learn about castling, en passants, and stalemate rules.

Learn the language by buying a book and watching a lot of ChessNetwork's YouTube videos. And play, play, play. 15 or 20 min games. Give yourself time to think.
