Movements and Rules in Chess

Based upon www.chess.com

Each of the 6 different kinds of pieces moves differently. Pieces cannot move through other pieces (though the knight can jump over other pieces), and can never move onto a square with one of their own pieces. However, they can be moved to take the place of an opponent's piece which is then captured. Pieces are generally moved into positions where they can capture other pieces (by landing on their square and then replacing them), defend their own pieces in case of capture, or control important squares in the game.

The Queen

The Queen can move as far as possible as long as she

does not move through any of her own pieces. And,

like with all pieces, if the Queen captures an opponent's

piece her move is over.

Queen-eats-Pawn

The Queen is the most powerful piece in Chess.

If moved she can do it in any one straight direction:

forward, backward, sideways, or diagonally, as far

as possible.

The Rook

And, like all pieces, the Rook can never move onto a square

with one of its own pieces. However, it can be moved to

take the place of an opponent's piece and capture it.

Rook eating

The Rook may move as far as it wants, but only

forward, backward, and to the sides.
