The board is setup so that a dark square is in your left hand corner.Now we`ll learn which kinds of pieces there are and how they move. In chess-and that makes it so interesting- there are six different kinds of pieces with different movements and different values. Each player has got 16 pieces:
one king K (k or K)
one queen Q (q or Q)
two rooks RR (r or R)
two bishopsLL (l or L) *
two knights NN (n or N)
8 pawnsPPPPPPPP(p or P)
Please note: White piece: upper case,
Black piece: lower case.
*The "L" instead of "B" for "bishop" may be a little bit irritating; this chessfonts it`s not possible by another way. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Please learn "b" or "B" for "bishop" !!
