my solution to this code fights problem

generates an odd and even offset board and checks their reference values

Given two cells on the standard chess board, determine whether they have the same color or not.

def chessBoardCellColor(cell1, cell2):
    [fooa, foob] = cell1
    [bara, barb] = cell2

    fooa = ord(fooa) % 2 
    foob = int(foob) % 2

    bara = ord(bara) % 2 
    barb = int(barb) % 2

    board = [[(i+1)%2 for i in range(0,9)], [i%2 for i in range(0,9)]]

    return True if board[fooa][foob] == board[bara][barb] else False
