Over the last two weeks we have covered two Chess concepts:
Castling is when you move your king and one of your castles at the same time. The king moves two squares towards a castle, and that castle moves to the square on the other side of the king.
BUT, you cannot castle if:
- Either the king or the castle have already moved
- Either square that you would move to is under attack
- Out of check
Refer to letters and then numbers to give the coordinates of the square a piece is on. For example: E4.
Each piece, apart from the king has a value
- Queen = 9
- Rook = 5
- Bishop/ knight = 3
- Pawn = 1
