### What is the importance of bishop in chess?

The shape of the top simulates a real bishop's miter and usually has two curved slashes on it. These shapes indicate that the bishop moves along diagonals rather than in straight lines like the rooks.

### Is a fianchetto one or two moves?

Whilst of course to perform the move the knight's pawn must have moved, it is not important as to where it moves. The act of fianchettoing is to move the bishop in front of the knight and onto the long diagonal regardless of what the pawn has done. It is for that reason that I would argue a fianchetto is only one move; the bishop's move.

### How does a bird change directions?

Birds change direction in flight just like an airline pilot. They move their wings. If one wing is higher than the other, that creates more lift on one side.

### Can animals with bilateral symmetry move only in one direction?

Huh? You are an animal with bilateral symmetry. Check how many directions you are able to move.

### Which piece in chess can only move diagonally?

The bishop is the only chess piece that exclusively moves in a diagonal direction. It (the bishop) moves "on a slant" or it does not move. It's that simple.The bishop can sometimes be thought of as the "opposite" of the rook, as the rook can only move across ranks or along files, meaning horizontally or vertically.Lastly, the bishop can never attack a square of a color it is not on, and for obvious reasons. It is also obvious that a player has two bishops, and each is confined to only one color of squares. This is why the bishop, in spite of its ability to reach long distances across an open board, has a bit less value than a rook. The rook can reach long distances across an open board, too, but it is not confined to a color like the bishop. Again, for obvious reasons.

### Which way does the divergent boundary go?

The diverging plates move away from one another in opposite directions.

### Can a queen in chess move move more than 1 space?

Yes, at least if she can move freely. There are always 14 moves in horizontal and vertical directions regardless of the location she stands. (This is similar to a rook.) For diagonal moves we think of a Bishop; standing on the edge or one of the corners it will cover 7 squares diagonally. Now think the chessboard as it comprises concentric squares, or "contours". On the outmost contour, i.e. edge of the board the bishop covers 7 squares. On the next inner contour the bishop covers 9 squares; on the next inner contour it covers 11 squares. And finally on the innermost contour, that is either of the 4 centre squares the bishop can cover a maximum of 13 square. As Queen = Rook + Bishop, she can cover either 21, 23, 25, or 27 squares depending on the "contour" where she stands.

### What are all the names of all the chess pieces?

The chess pieces are the pawn (8 per color or side), knight (2 per color or side), rook or castle (2 per color or side), bishop (2 per color or side), the queen (1 per color or side) and the king (1 per color or side).

### Why does a bishop move diaganal?

This is to make the game more fun, limiting a piece to only one type of square. (Amateur pro's tip: Keep your bishop pair for domination of all squares, not just one specific color.)
