Now as you have learned how to set up a chessboard you must be wondering what will be your chess next moves. In this post, we will walk you through all the possible chess moves.
At an early age, chess was known as Chaturanga and was played by Indians in the 7th century. It has changed slightly with time. In Spain during the 15th century, Queen was first developed, this variation was known as Queen chess. But before that, it was tended to be one of the weaker chess pieces like a Counsellor or Vizier. And later on in the early 1800s, it had added some minor movement adjustments.
In 1980 chess computers were able to beat some of the best players and it has evolved since.
Longest Chess Game Ever
In 1989 the longest chess game was played that lasted over 20 hours with 269 moves at the location of “Belgrade” and ended in a draw.
Chess Pieces Moves
Every chess piece can move only at a certain pace with a fixed direction.
A pawn moves straight and can attack one angle with one square at a time. If it’s the Pawn’s first move, then it can move to two squares. There are eight pawns in a chess game.
A knight moves unconventionally in an L-shape, that is it can move two squares in any direction vertically or horizontally followed by one square (vertically to horizontally or vice versa).
A bishop can move in any direction diagonally. Bishop that begins on light or dark squares can move on only that color from where they started. White on white or black on black.
A rook can move in a cross but cannot jump over pieces. It also takes part with King in a particular move called Castling.
A queen can move in a straight, vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line and is the most powerful piece.
A king can only move to one square in any direction at a single time.
- Open with a Pawn and move it in front of King and Queen two squares ahead.
- Get Knights and Bishops out from the backs of Pawns so they can attack.
- Never give pieces in positions or try to pick off your opponent’s Pawns without any strategy.
- Lose your pieces accurately and don’t waste time.
- Castle early and attack in the Middlegame but don’t rush.
- Checkmate your opponent wisely and win the Endgame.
