My best friend's father-in-law is a bishop and we have a chequered floor in our kitchen - yet he moved over it fine, diagonals or no. Kings haven't been on a battlefield for centuries, pawn is blue rather than black or white, castles can't move at all, horses tend to go in a straight line (or sometimes round a large oval) and queens today are something totally different.
Also, I've just lost a game and so it must be the rules' fault.
(p.s. it's just a game)
I agree we need to get rid of all the rules. They are so frustrating.
Rooks nest in tall trees, and Knights are long in Winter, but considerably shorter in Summer, at least at the Arctic circle, so I assume they dont jump so high over other pieces.
I think that the important thing to remember is that horses can jump over castles...
