Chess Strategies

Chess is a game of strategy and tactics.

Chess Pieces

Ever since the earliest times, and especially with regards to the most ancient of preliterate societies, chess-like pieces - isolated from whatever boards they could have been played on - were only simple figurines cut from stone, or made from clay and fired, and for their small size could have been used to help in accounting in trade and commerce. (wikipedia)

Each player controls sixteen pieces:

1 King

1 Queen

2 Rooks

2 Bishops

2 Knights

8 Pawns

Each piece moves in a different way. Generally, a piece cannot pass through squares occupied by other pieces, but it can move to a square occupied by an opposing piece, which is then "captured" (removed from the board).

The rook moves orthogonally to the players (forward, backward, left or right) any number of squares.

The bishop moves diagonally any number of squares.

The queen moves orthogonally or diagonally, any number of squares.

The king moves orthogonally or diagonally only one square at a time.

The knight moves in an "L"-shape (two spaces in one direction and one space orthogonally to it). It is the only piece that can jump over other pieces.

The pawn moves one space straight forward (away from the player). On its first move it can optionally move two spaces forward. If there is an enemy piece diagonally (either left or right) one space in front of the pawn, the pawn may move diagonally to capture that piece. A pawn cannot capture or jump over a piece directly in front of it.

 


Chess is a board game and mental-skill game for two players. It is played on a square board of eight rows, called ranks, and eight columns, called files, giving 64 squares of alternating colour, light and dark.

Each player begins the game with 16 pieces which can move in defined directions. Chess is a strategy game.
