Pieces movement continued… • Bishops- (2 is given in the beginning of the game) The bishop also has no restrictions in distance for each move but it can only move diagonally movement. • Rooks- (2 is given in the beginning of the game) The castle shaped piece, like the bishop and queen, has no restrictions in distance but it can only move horizontally and vertically • Pawns- (8 is given in the beginning of the game) Pawns are unusual in movement and use, but unlike all the other pieces, pawns may not move backwards. That attack diagonally and keeps moving forward. When you reach the opponent’s side you may change your pawn into a different piece expect another king.
