Medieval Chess, Rules, How Pawns Moved:
Part of the Chess History Guide
- How Pawns Moved -
Pawns moved in precisely the same way as in the modern game - that is one move forward, per turn.
The only difference is, where in the modern game, you're able to advance your Pawns two squares on their opening moves, the Medieval game restricted them to one move, throughout the game.
