# How to Play Chest?

The game of chess has been around since the 15th century where it became popular in Europe. To play chess one has to know the pieces involved and the rules to follow. The purpose of the game is to capture your opponent’s king. The king is the most important piece and can only move one square in any direction - up, down, to the sides, and diagonally. The queen (most powerful piece) move in any one straight direction - forward, backward, sideways, or diagonally - as far as possible as long as she does not move through any of her own pieces. The rook may move as far as it wants, but only forward, backward, and to the sides. The bishop may move as far as it wants, but only diagonally. Each bishop starts on one colour (light or dark) and must always stay on that colour. Knights move in a very different way from the other pieces – going two squares in one direction, and then one more move at a 90 degree angle, just like the shape of an L. Knights are also the only pieces that can move over other pieces. Pawns move and capture in different ways: they move forward, but capture diagonally. Pawns can only move forward one square at a time, except for their very first move where they can move forward two squares. Pawns can only catch one square diagonally in front of them.
