i like to use rooks,bishops and pawns,i don't really sac. pawns for no reason :)
pawn-short and fat,not my thing 1/5
Knight-looks like a horse but has bulgy eyes 3/5
bishop-just a tall pawn 3/5
rook-a short castle with a turret 4/5
queen-I am a male so I dont like em 3/5
King -very tall with a cross on the head 5/5
the knight is ALWAYS the centerpiece of any finely crafted chess set
and the survey asks for appearance, not special abilities (but the knight is the only piece that can jump over any piece, so it covers that question as well)
Can you imagine Palalin, hero of "Have-gun will travel" using the image of a pawn on is business card?
Appearance, people - appearance!!! Doesn't anybody know what appearance means?
what is wrong with the queen!! She rules!!!
the pawn was called the SOUL!!!!! of chess by a champion
Thinking back i would not have voted the way I did lol.
Bishops kind of look like Beaker from the Muppet Show.
I always find myself arranging the pieces so they face the same direction as my king before/during a match, It seems to annoy the players and stops them concentrating...only in tournaments though...
komonj do noth silly without a queen dere is nothing you now ! i love queen ! i am dont a gay !
King of course! to those who watched Lelouch of the rebellion
The king would be my favorite. They're tall and majestic pieces and even though they don't do much, per se, they're the heart of the game. In a way, they represent the player. They are the strategist. The one commanding the army.
The castly piece...definitely the castly piece.
The knight is in the lead!
The king is so tall, and the cross figure on top makes it uniquely crowned. I'm surprised it's the second lowest voted for. The knights on so many chess sets are ugly to me.
Rooks rule because its like a fortress that you can move, can attack long range, and you can always count o he to make a comeback!RRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSSSSSSS RRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
