Do you want to learn chess? First get to know the names of all chess pieces.
You got 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Rooks, 2 Bishops, 2 Knights and 8 Pawns on 64 squares.
The basic start position in chess is like this: See the chess position below. When you put the chess pieces on to the chess board, you should place them correctly on to the right squares. There are some rules to follow.
- There must be a white square at the right corner!
- The white queen must be on a white square.
- The black queen must be on black square.
- Number 1 is always where the white pieces are placed.
- White moves first.
Each type of piece has its own method of movement.A piece may be moved to another position. At the end of the move that piece may capture an opponent’s piece. This is done by landing on the appropriate square with the moving piece and removing the defending piece from play. The removed piece is said to be “taken” or “captured”.
