I am learning to play chess.
My uncle bought me a chess set for my 4th birthday.
To win you have kill your opponent's king before he kills your king.
There are several kinds of pieces: pawns, knights, bishops, rooks, a queen, and a king.
Each piece moves differently.
Pawns advance one square at a time. But on their first move they can go two spaces. And they can go diagonally one space only when they take someone.
Knights move up two and over one square in any direction.
Bishops move diagonally in any direction.
Rooks move up and down and sideways as many spaces as they want.
The queen is very powerful. She can move in any direction, any number of spaces.
The king can also move in any direction but only one space at a time.
