The articles give insight into playing Chess online and familiarises you with game rules.

A game of Chess requires two players with each player given a set of pieces, placed at the bottom of the board on either side. The pieces of Chess are arranged and placed in the same order in front of both players. The chess pieces include King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawns. The first row has King, Queen, Bishop, Knight and Rook, whereas the second row has pawns.

Chess Pieces and Moves

There are six types of chess pieces in a game, and every piece moves differently on the board. Only the knight is capable of moving over other pieces even when they are obstructing the way. The main objective of the game is to capture all the opponent's pieces by moving the pieces in a smart direction from one space to another promptly.

The most crucial piece in the game is king. However, it is the weakest when it comes to the movement on the chessboard. Other pieces can move freely on the board and can be moved several spaces once; the king can only be moved one space forward or sideward. The main aim is to protect the king from opponent’s pieces and any piece which overtakes the king is referred to Check, which means the end of the game.


 Movement of Chess Pieces

As mentioned above, the king is the weakest of all chess pieces and can move only one step either forward or sideward. Queen is the most influential pieces on the chessboard and can be moved in a straight line anywhere. 

Rooks are neutral when it comes to the movement on the chessboard. They can be moved in straight lines in all directions but are only limited to sides and cannot cross other pieces or moved in angular directions.

Bishops are again neutral and can move only in a diagonal direction. If the bishop is white, it can be moved in a diagonal direction in white checks and blacks in backspaces only. Having two bishops for each player strengthens the power of other pieces. 

When it comes to knight, it can be moved on the board in an 'L' shape pattern, which means two blocks ahead and one block sideward. Pawns on the board are weak and can be moved only one step forward and can be easily captured. However, these pawns can be promoted if they reach the other side of the chessboard.
