"In two-player sequential games, a ply is one turn taken by one of the players. The word is used to clarify what is meant when one might otherwise say "turn". ... For example, in standard chess terminology, one move consists of a turn by each player; therefore a ply in chess is a half-move."

In two-player sequential games, a ply is one turn taken by one of the players. ... For example, in standard chess terminology, one move consists of a turn by each player; therefore a ply in chess is a half-move. Thus, after 20 moves in a chess game, 40 plies have been completed—20 by white and 20 by black.

It's when you've picked up a piece and wished
you hadn't and are looking for a safe square.

You have a rating over 1700 but don't know what a half move is?

One way or the other, something's wrong with you
