Questions and Answers
• 1.

### True or False: A KNIGHT can only jump over your own pieces

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
This statement is false because a knight is able to jump over both its own pieces and the opponent's pieces. The knight's unique movement allows it to jump over other pieces on the board, regardless of their color. Therefore, it is not limited to jumping over only its own pieces.

En Passant

• B.

Capture

• C.

Promotion

• D.

Moving 2 spaces forward on it's first move

• E.

Jumping over other pieces

Correct Answer(s)
A. En Passant
B. Capture
C. Promotion
D. Moving 2 spaces forward on it's first move
Explanation
The given answer lists the actions that a pawn can perform in chess. These actions include en passant, capture, promotion, and moving two spaces forward on its first move. En passant is a special pawn capture move that can only be done under specific circumstances. Capture refers to the pawn's ability to capture opponent's pieces. Promotion is when a pawn reaches the opposite end of the board and can be replaced by a more powerful piece. Moving two spaces forward on its first move allows the pawn to quickly advance towards the center of the board.

### If you get to the end of the board with a PAWN, what can you do?

• A.

Win the game

• B.

Swap the piece for a new piece

• C.

Take the opponents QUEEN

• D.

None of the above

Correct Answer
B. Swap the piece for a new piece
Explanation
If a pawn reaches the end of the board, it has the option to be promoted to a new piece. This means that the pawn can be exchanged for a more powerful piece such as a queen, rook, bishop, or knight. This rule allows the pawn to have a chance to become a stronger piece and potentially have a better chance of winning the game. Therefore, the correct answer is "Swap the piece for a new piece."

Rate this question:

### A KING is in ____ when it is threatened by another piece

Correct Answer
check
Check
Explanation
When a king is in "check," it means that it is being threatened by another piece on the chessboard. This is a critical situation in the game as the king is the most important piece, and if it remains in check without any possible moves to escape, the game is over. The term "check" is used to alert the player that their king is in danger and they need to take immediate action to protect it. Both "check" and "Check" are correct spellings of the term.

### A chessboard has how many squares?

• A.

64

• B.

62

• C.

60

• D.

23

Correct Answer
A. 64
Explanation
A standard chessboard consists of 64 squares, arranged in an 8x8 grid. Each square is an individual space on the board where chess pieces can be placed and moved. The total number of squares can be calculated by adding up the number of squares in each row or column, resulting in 64 squares in total.

### True or False: A QUEEN goes on it's own colour

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
In chess, the queen is placed on the square that matches its own color. This means that a white queen is placed on a white square, while a black queen is placed on a black square. Therefore, the statement "A QUEEN goes on its own color" is true.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### The QUEEN is on the right side of the KING but is on its colour after set up. What have I most likely done wrong?

• A.

Put a white square on A1

• B.

Paint over a square

Correct Answer
A. Put a white square on A1
Explanation
By putting a white square on A1, you have incorrectly set up the chessboard. In a standard chess setup, A1 should be a black square. The queen is usually placed on a square of her own color, which means that if A1 is white, the queen should be placed on a black square. Therefore, by placing a white square on A1, you have disrupted the correct positioning of the queen and king on their respective colors.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### True or False: A QUEEN is the most important piece on the board

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
Of course the KING is! That's what the whole game is about!
