The white queen.
The pawn is the most symmetrical piece. It is the only piece with infinite planes of symmetry.
The FIRST piece I look at when purchasing a chess set is the knight ... if the knight passes the mark, then I'll look at the other pieces and pawns ... :)
Why you guys pick knight. They are ugly on a lot of chess boards. On all the chess boards the rooks are the best. GO! ROOKS! GO!
i agree with the gentleman that said it depends on the set but if its HOUSE OF STAUNTON blood rosewood rook id take it any day beutiful art peace
If we're talking about standard tournament chess peices I say queen
It depends on the set.We had a clunky wooden set twenty or so years ago, and the knights looked great.
Pawn because you get 16 of them! 16x better!
some knights in chess sets can be really really ugly....
King because it's the tallest
The Bishop due to it phallic symbolism.
Queen , it can adopt move of any piece but knight
People come up with a lot of reasons here, that have NOTHING to do with the question. Which piece do you like best in APPEARANCE. They're not asking which one you like best because of its moves or how ancient it is. It's about appearance only. Knights are the most distinguished pieces, they don't look a lot like the other pieces, but I find it very hard to say that that makes Knights the best looking piece. I think Rooks are pretty cool looking, the castle-tower image resembles strength, protection, power. Yea, I'm gonna go with Rook here.
he was on todayso he is not dead
