Chess: How King Moves and Captures

King is the most important piece on the chess board, it is the leader of all the pieces and one who captures the king wins the game. Now like all other pieces king can also move only in some certain ways. It can move only one step at a time. However, it can move in any direction as long as it is one step at a time. So, it can move diagonally, vertically, sideways, upwards and downwards, diagonally upwards and diagonally downwards. The king also captures one step at a time.

The king also needs to be protected by the other pieces on the board because if your king gets captured by the opponents’ king, then your game is over. King is the most important piece on the chessboard and must be protected because with its capture the game ends. So that is a quick chess lesson for beginners about king moves and how it captures.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
