The Queen!

  • The Queen starts on d1 for white and d8 for black (if you don't know what this means, check out the Chess Notation page)

  • The Queen chess piece is like a combination of the Rook and Bishop chess pieces

  • The queen can move in any direction on a straight or diagonal path

  • The queen cannot "jump" over any piece on the board, so its movements are restricted to any direction of unoccupied squares

  • The queen can be used to capture any of your opponent's pieces on the board
