Pawns: The most common piece in the set of chess pieces is the pawn. There are 9 pawns in each set
which makes it very easy to identify them. They are the shortest pieces in the set. The pawns may move
1 or 2 spaces forward in their first move and one space forward in their next moves. A pawn can move
to the space diagonally forward on the left or the right but only to kill a piece of the opponent.
Rooks: There are two rooks to a set of chess pieces. The rook is the piece which looks like a castle and
in some parts of the world is also known as a castle. It can move any number of horizontal or vertical
steps till it reaches the end of the board or kills a piece of the opponent.
Knights: There are two knights in every team in chess. A knight is a piece which looks like a horse. The
knight moves 2 and a half steps in any direction. This means that it may move 2 spaces in any directions
and 1 step sideways each time.
Bishops: The bishops are also known as the camels. There are two bishops in each team of chess. The
bishops look like minarets and have a pointed top. A bishop can move any number of steps diagonally in
any direction till the end of the board or till it kills a piece of the opponent.
Queen:The Queen is the second most tallest piece in the set. Unlike the king, it does not have a cross on
the top. The queen can move any number of spaces in any direction till it reaches the end of the board or
till it kills a piece of the opponent's army. This makes the queen one of the most lethal pieces in the set.
King: The tallest piece in the set is called the king. It has a cross on top. It is the most crucial piece in
the set of chess pieces as the game is over once the king dies. The king can move only one step in any
direction at a time.
