Different chess pieces have different rules of movement. Let's try to tabulate the rules:
|Name of the chess piece||Orthogonal movement||Diagonal movement||The maximum number of places the chess piece is allowed to move|
|Pawn||Yes, but it captures diagonally||No||1 or 2|
As evident from the table, the rules for all the chess pieces except for Knight and Pawn are pretty straightforward.
Knights are different from the others. They must move two squares in one direction, and then one more move at a 90-degree angle, following the shape of an L. Knights are also the only chess pieces that can jump over other chess pieces. ...
