King: Checkmate or stalemate it, and you win. If your opponent checkmates or stalemates you, you lose.

Queen: The most powerful piece in the game. Can move almost anywhere on the board.

Bishop: Can move in diagonal directions.

Knight: Can move in L-shaped directions.

Rook: Can move in horizontal or vertical lines.

### Can you capture your own piece in chess?

No, you cannot. It is illegal to take one of your own pieces on any move.

### If you got all the pieces in chess how many points would you get?

Each piece in chess, has it's own value, and that value is measured by the number of pawns it would take, to make up for that piece, or something like that!On your team, at the beginning of a game of chess, there are 8 pawns, 2 bishops, 2 knights, 2 rooks, and 1 queen. And, of course, there is only one king per color.The pawns, or course, are worth 1, the bishops and the knights are each worth 3, the rooks each are worth 5, the queens 9, and the king....Priceless!So if you where to capture all your opponent's pieces, it would be worth 39 pawn points. Remember, the king cannot be captured, and cannot be measured in pawn points.

### Where can I find unique porcelain chess for a gift?

I have seen Gucci, Noblie and Llardo porcelain chess sets. There are plenty of mass-produces chess sets on todayβs market, since the production of custom and handmade porcelain chess is hardly possible, due to the complexity of the manufacturing process and since a miniature sculpture is first made for each chess piece before the whole set. It is a long and expensive process. There are also several artisans, who make unique and limited chess sets. Noblie Collectibles has a nice collection of exclusive porcelain chess sets. The prices will be high, but the quality is at the highest level.
