Can queens jump over things at chess?

The Queen may not move as you described because it is an illegal move - only the knight has the power to jump other chess pieces . ~ See related link below for more information as to how the Queen moves .A:In regular chess, the Queen cannot jump any pieces at all. (The only piece which can jump an intervening pawn or piece is the Knight.)*However, there are versions of chess with alternate rules, known collectively as fairy chess, in which the Queen might be granted Knight-like features, including the ability to jump over a piece rather than capturing it.*And the King, while castling, can in a sense be said to have jumped over the Rook.

How do you capture a king?

In chess, a king can capture any other piece except another king. Getting next to a the opposing king puts you in check because it allows your king to be taken first losing the game. Moving next to the opposing queen is the same situation unless the queen moves next to the king as some sort of sacrifice ploy.

How are the chess pieces put on the board?

Take sure that a white square is in the lower right of the board first. Then place a rook (a.k.a. castle) in that square. On the adjacent black square next to the rook, place a knight, next to that a bishop, then, if you are playing as white, place the king, or if you are playing as black, place your queen. Remember, the queen always is placed on the same color as you are playing. (The black queen on a black square, and the white on white.) Then place the white king next to the white queen, and the black king next to the black queen. Complete the back row with bishop, knight, then rook. On the second row place all eight pawns.

Is it possible to checkmate someone with just a knight?

No. A Knight with only a king cannot checkmate the other King, even if that King has no other pieces. Under the official rules of chess when a game comes down to one player having only a King and the other player having only a King and a Knight, the game is automatically a draw. The same goes for a King and a Bishop against a lone King. This is why the Knight and Bishop are referred to as "minor pieces" while the Queen and Rook are "major pieces." A King and Queen or a King and Rook are able to checkmate a lone King.

Why is there a cross on the king piece in chess?

The pieces in chess all represent opposing kingdoms as would have been involved in wars of the distant past. The rooks (chariots), knights, bishops, and pawns represent the allied forces within a realm. In some early forms of chess, the queen was actually a weak piece with the same movement as the king. Later changes in the rules of movement made her the most powerful of the pieces. The queen can move in the same manner as do rooks and bishops. This makes her powerful in attacks. But like all the other pieces, she is still used to protect the king.

What is it called when a pawn reaches the other side of the chess board?
