How to Play Chess
Start the chess game with knights and pawns. Knights can jump over other pieces by moving two squares in any direction and another square in a direction perpendicular to it. The pawn can move forward two squares for the first move, and after that, only one square at a time.
Your goal is to attack your opponent's king while keeping your own king safe. The bishops can move in any diagonal direction for however many steps are available. Rooks can do the same, but only in a straight (non-diagonal) direction. Queens can move in any direction with however many steps are available; the king can do the same but only one square at a time.
When your king is placed in "check," attack the threatening pieces or move the king out to a safe place.
