Best Answer

Assuming you're talking about en passant in Chess I'll explain. Say you haven't moved a pawn and there is another pawn threatening the space one up from your pawn. Suppose you move your pawn two spaces up taking it out of harms way of your opponents pawn. En passant is when they move to the space that you would've moved to if you'd only moved the pawn up one . They take you piece and take the space you would've moved to. This move only works with pawns.
