The Rook, moves any number of unobstructed squares up, down, left or right, but not diagonally.

image
The Bishop, moves any number of unobstructed squares diagonally. Each bishop can move on black squares only or white squares only.

image
The Queen combines the move potential of the Rook and Bishop, so can move any number of unobstructed squares in any straight line.

The King, moves 1 square in any direction but cannot move to any square where it can be captured immediately. The object of the game is to place the opposing King under attack in such a way that it cannot escape.

A special move is available for the King and Rook called Castling, this can only be played once per game by each side. If the squares between a King and a Rook are vacant, and there are no opposing pieces threatening those squares, and neither the King nor the relevant Rook have moved yet, and the King is not in check, then the King can move 2 squares sideways towards that Rook, while the Rook moves to the other side of the King (2 squares left for Kingside castling, or 3 squares right for Queenside castling).
