Can i create a chess-like game in flash? Can someone give me a sample FLA about creating a board game. Or tips in making a board game.

it's not easy. I've made chess and checkers (for c ommercial projects so I can't show you the source, of course). Mine included artificial inteligence to play against you, but even just making a 2 human player version is quite complicated if you want to allow for special moves et al.
I would recommend you read some documentation on programming chess / checkers online. I read a lot and it gave me some good ideas as to how to setup the board. 2D arrays are of course the most obvious way.
