How to Play Chess Online

In this free chess online game, you can start by either moving a pawn or a knight. Knights move in an L-shape and pawns move forward, one square at a time -- but can move two squares on their first move. Bishops move diagonally across the chess board, and queens can move in any direction. Both can move as many spaces as are available. Kings can move freely, one square at a time. Rooks are able to move forward, backward and to the sides but not diagonally. You can learn more about free chess games by clicking the menu bar on the left.
