|Interpretation:||You're a beginner - new to Chess - and you want to know about the individual Chess Pieces.|
We'll cover each Piece briefly, here, as you'll find more detailed articles, about the Pawns and Pieces, by following the Recommended Links, below.
At the stage when I was a beginner myself, I found it easiest to remember the Pawns and different Pieces by always listing them in a specific order.
That order was based on their relative worth on the Chessboard. So, we have, as follows:
Now, I must quickly point out that the overall majority of players - for the sake of peace - value Knights & Bishops at 3 points each (as noted above) ...
However, there are some who prefer the long-range attacking merits of the Bishops and so will value Bishops at 3½ (versus 3 points, for the Knight).
It's for this reason, that I've listed Bishops after Knights.
Okay, for beginners, what I recommend now, is you head on over to our Beginners Chess Guide and start familiarizing yourself with the article about the Individual Chess Pieces.
(You can take a shortcut to that article, by clicking the first Recommended Link, below).
