Moves in chess are determined by the nature of the pieces and the spaces available for a legal move. Any chess piece can move backwards except for the pawn - and even the pawn can move backwards in a sense, if it reaches the back of the board and is promoted.
Your pawn can move 1 space or 2 spaces for your first move in chess or your knight can make its accustomed move.
A pawn on the 2nd rank may move two spaces directly forward if the way is clear. Pawns do not jump.
The pawn is allowed to move two (or one) spaces forward on its first move, but only one move on each other. It can not move backwards. It can only capture pieces diagonally, therefore if there is a piece in front of it, the pawn is not allowed to move unless the piece moves out of its way. One more thing is, if the pawn manages to make it across the board it can switch out for any other piece except the king or the pawn itself.
A pawn may move forward either one or two spaces when making the pawn's first move.
No , the pawn may not move backwards .
Each individual pawn can move two spaces on its first move
No. Promoting your pawn counts as your move.
Yes, A knight movement is 2 up and 1 over, or 1 up and 2 over. It is allowed to move in this pattern in any direction. =========================== The only chess piece that is not allowed to move backward is the pawn.
Yes, you can. There is a move called "en passant" that enables you to take a pawn without moving. If the opponent's pawn jumps two spaces in its first move to avoid being taken by your pawn, "en passant" is in effect and you can take his pawn.
No , the King is allowed to move only one space at a time - the pawn may , upon it's first move , excercise the option of moving from one to two spaces .
This depends on the piece you're moving, as you can move a knight as an opening move, but the knight's awkward L-shaped pattern doesn't usually translate to a number of spaces, per se. You're probably thinking of the pawn's initial move, as the pawn is the most commonly moved piece for an opening move. The pawn can only move 1 or 2 squares from its initial position, and then only 1 square at a time after that.
