Chess Rules

Game Goal / Checkmate

Chess is one of the oldest games in the world. It was probably invented in India more than a thousand years ago.

Each player controls an army of pieces which are set up at the start of the game as shown. The aim of the game is to use your army to capture the enemy king.

This capture happens when the king is under attack and unable to avoid capture. In that case we have a checkmate and the game is over.

Pawn Movement

Pawns only move forward.

On the first move a pawn can move one or two spaces. On the next turn it can only move one space forward.

Pawns move diagonally to take opponents.

Pawn Promotion

If a pawn reaches the opposite side of the board, it is promoted to a higher piece (except king).

There is no limit to how many pawns can be promoted.

Rook

Rooks are the second strongest pieces of our army and move in a continuous line forwards, backwards, and side-to-side.

Knight

Knights are the only pieces that jump off the board. Unlike other pieces the are not blocked if there are pieces between them and their destination square.

To make it easier to remember how a knight moves think of an L. Two spaces in a direction forward, backward, or side-to-side, and one space at a right turn.

Bishop

Bishops move in continuous diagonal lines in any direction.

Queen

The queen is the strongest piece of all and moves in continuous diagonal and straight lines forward, backward, and side-to-side.

Each player starts with one queen but it is possible to obtain more by promoting pawns.

King

The king can move in any direction, one square at a time.

A king can't move to a square that is under attack by the opponent.

Castling

Castling is the only move that allows two pieces to move during the same turn. During castling a king moves two spaces towards the rook that it will castle with, and the rook jumps to the other side. The king can castle to either side as long as:
The king has not moved.
The king is not in check.
The king does not move through or into check.
There are no pieces between the king and the castling-side rook.
The castling-side rook has not moved.

En Passant

En passant is a special movement for pawns attacking pawns.

It only applies if your opponent moves a pawn two spaces, an its destination space is near your pawn. You can take the opposing piece by moving forward-diagonally to your pawn's attacked square.

Check

A king is in check when an opponent is in a position that can attack the king. A player must move their king out of check, or block the check immediately.

A player cannot move their king into a check.

Checkmate

Putting an opponent's king in checkmate is the only way too win the game.

A king is in checkmate if it is in check, cannot block the check, and canot move to a square that is not under attack.

In the image above the white queen has the black king in check, and all of the spaces where the king can move can be attacked by the queen. The king cannot take the queen, because the knight is protecting the queen. The black bishop cannot block the queen. This is checkmate.

Stalemate

Simply put, a stalemate is a tie. It is achieved if there are no legal moves for a player to make.

On this board it is white's turn. All spaces around the king are being attacked, but the king is not in check, therefore it cannot move. The only other white piece, the pawn, is blocked by the king. Because movement is impossible, the game is a stalemate.

If white had another piece somewhere on the board that was not blocked, it would have to move. The game would continue.







How to Play

Use the letter tiles shown in the playing field to create valid English-language words.
Use your keyboard to type out words using letters from the playing field then click enter when you are done spelling the word.
You can also use your mouse left click or touch touchscreen devices with your finger to drag letters from the playing field across to the location then hit the submit button.

This game has 3 levels where you must spell progressively more words per level, starting with 20 then 30 then 40. If you click the game over button after losing a level you can start back at the first level. If you would like to continue playing a level then you can instead refresh your web browser to start the current level over again.

In this game you can use variations of the same word and you can even repeatedly enter the same word provided you have the letter tiles available to spell it.

Your point total is summed across three levels. You score 5 points for each second you have remaining when the puzzle is complete and you also score more points for spelling longer words.
