If a king is placed in check by a rook and the rook is unprotected, they yes, the king can capture it. Another way to view the situation is that if a rook is used to put a king in check and the king will not end up in check by capturing that rook, then the king may take the rook.
no, if either your king is in check or your rook is able to be captured the next turn, you may not castle. Also, none of the squares between your king and rook can be threatened either.
The board game in which players castle to protect their king and/or develop a rook is called Chess. To castle, the king and rook being castled can not have moved, the king may not be in check, there may not be a piece between the castling king and rook, and an opponent's piece may not be attacking the squares in which the king moves. To castle, the king moves two squares either towards the kingside rook or the queenside rook, and the rook is placed on the square the king passed through. Castling takes one chess turn.
Castling in chess is a special move where you move two pieces at once (your king and a rook). To castle the following conditions must be met: 1) the king and the rook have not been moved, 2) the king is not in check, 3) the king will not move through or end up in check, and 4) there are no pieces between the king and rook. To castle, move the king two squares toward the rook, then move the rook to the square on the other side of the king and adjacent to it like below: K _ _ R (before castling) _ R K _ (after castling) R _ _ _ K (before castling) _ _ K R _ (after castling)
Castling in chess is usually used to protect the king and/or begin the development of the rook. There are some restrictions. First, there can't be any pieces between the king and the rook. Second, you can't castle if you have already moved the king or the rook you want to castle with. Third, if the square beside the king and between the king and the rook is under attack, you cannot castle. (You'd be moving the king "across" an attacked square, which is not allowed.) Lastly, you cannot castle if your king is in check. (You cannot castle to get out of check.) To castle, first move the king two squares towards the rook on the side you wish to castle on. Then pick up the rook and put it on the square that king "passed over" when it was moved to castle.
You may capture a queen with any piece, be it a rook, a pawn, or even a king.
Yes... Castling - is the swapping positions of the Rook (castle) and the King. However - it can ONLY be done in the following circumstances... Castling consists of moving the king two squares towards a rook on the player's first rank, then moving the rook to the square over which the king crossed. Castling may only be done if the king has never moved, the rook involved has never moved, the squares between the king and the rook involved are unoccupied, the king is not in check, and the king does not cross over or end on a square in which it would be in check.
Absolutely, but the process involves a little different location of the moved Rook, depending if it is the Queen's rook or the King's rook.
There is a maneouvre in chess called castling. It can only be performed when neither the king nor the rook involved have been moved and when there are no pieces between them of either colour, and cannot be peformed while in check.It allows you to move the king two places towards the involved rook; the rook is then placed on the opposite side of the king.
Yes, if the rook is attacked, you can still castle. You just can't castle if the rook is either in check, or would be castling through check.
