A taxonomy of GAMES / game types?

Knightmare chess rules, anyone?

I'm introducing the people at my new job to the game, and it would be a lot easier if I still had a copy of the ruleset.

Learning Chess

I just finished reading "The Queen's Gambit" by Walter Tevis (great novel!). It made me want to learn chess. I already understand how all the pieces move, but I'm lost when it come to chess strategy. What's a good beginner's guide that will help me learn to think like a chess player?
