to play Chess the pieces need to be moved about and take other pieces from your opponent and and they go on a board call a chess board
All of the chess pieces names come from India, the country in which chess was originated from.
All pieces can attack in chess, but their range of positions and type of allowed movements can limit any of the pieces from attacking in the moment's situation. Example: A piece stuck at the back cannot jump forward to defend.
All of the pieces except the rooks, in old days, were people. Now, they evolved to become the chess pieces we know of today.
See the link for a beginner's guide to chess. It explains the rules, how the pieces move, and pretty much all you'll need to know to begin playing chess. http://www.chesscentral.com/chess_rule/play_chess.htm
Chess sets can be a simple as a chess board made of cardboard with plastic playing pieces and those are rather inexpensive. In addition, chess sets can also be as expensive as you would like, it all depends on the material you would like it made of.
your troops and soldiers and kings and queens and bishops and knights and castles
No. Apart from being a game that uses pieces that move around on the same board, they are completely different. They have different pieces. The pieces in checkers are all the same, but there are different types of pieces in chess. They move different ways. There are more pieces in chess. The objective of the game is different. Chess is a far more complicated game. So in many ways they are very different games.
There are many variations of the game of chess. You can play a type of team chess called bughouse, a one-on-one version of bughouse called crazy-house, there is blitz, which is speed chess. There is backwards chess, where you set up your pieces on the opposite side of the board, so that pawns are only one move away from promoting, there is sideways chess, which is the same thing, just the pieces are lined up vertically on the sides of the board, and there is suicide chess, where you must make a capture if there is one available, and the point of the game is to lose all your pieces, including your king.
All of them, except pawns!
All except the pawns.
all the corners See related link below to rules and placement of all chess pieces .
No , in keeping with the rules of chess the king must move out of check .
one metaphor is on the cover. the game of chess represents the choices Bella has to make and the consequences even one misplay could have. if she chooses one path others may die as, figuratively, chess pieces do. her live is so interconnected with the lives, pieces, of the other players. also as chess pieces have different ways of moving and abilities so do the vampires. it is explored deeply in breaking dawn the powers of many of the vampires, like the chess pieces they all have different abilities that contribute to their part of the game.

Take a handicap, spot him a piece (or pieces), put a clock on your move but let him take all the time he wants.

Only the pawn cannot move backwards. All the others can.
Howard Staunton promoted a design of the pieces used on almost all boards today, and required for all official events. They were designed by a chess set company called John Jaques of London in 1849. Before the company designed them, chess sets used pieces usually meant to represent various battlefield personnel, such as men on horses, cannons, archers, and swordsmen. These pieces were difficult to distinguish from one another.
The Lord of the Rings chess set is different to a normal chess set. The pieces of the chess set, rook, knight etc, are all featured on Lord of the Rings characters.
This is her famous piece called "Play it by trust" The idea is all the pieces of the chess board are the same color giving a deeper message of sameness- we are all the same as humans living in the same world. There are no winners or loosers.
I'm glad to see that we have someone who wants to play my favorite board game, chess :). One great free website that I highly recommend is chess.com . Some things that I specifically like about chess.com is that about 5,000 new members are joining everyday, so you'll never keep on having to play the same person. Another thing that I like about chess.com are all the features to help you improve your gameplay like the "Tactics Trainer" and the "Chess Mentor". Chess.com also has a daily puzzle everyday for you to solve. My truly favorite thing about chess.com is that you can play correspondence chess, or live chess. If you are a busy person, then you can play correspondence chess (days per move). However, if you like playing games that you can finish in one sitting, you can also play Live Chess. Hope this helped! ~ Max
in chess there are lots of different types of pieces ====================================== To start with, the two games are played on two different boards. It's true! They may look the same, but in chess, the square in the lower right-hand corner is white. In checkers, it's black. (Of course, all you have to do is turn the board 90 degrees to change from one board to the other.) plus there are different rules and the pieces are way different. you could never play checkers with chess pieces or vice versa now when you talk about chess and checkers, you need to know that Mr. Morely says that when you do not tuck your shirt in, that is called "playing checkers". now when you tuck you shirt in, Mr Morely says that you are playing chess! what a guy!
