i could not pick weather queen or pawn
i like queens, but i like pawns better, i like pawns better bec. i checkmated someone by getting 3 more queens. end up i had 4 queens. Pawns are equal to Queens looks bec. a pawn can be and look exactly like a queen
EVERY PIECE HAS A JOB EVEN IF I LIKE THE QUEEN ' S APPERANCE.
I think it was in 1972 on the beach in Mexico
Everyone, you have to admit it, the queen is the best.
Rook and queen are next in line
I choose bishop it is powerful
Pick the pawn. It can promote to all the peices exept the king.
I love two bishops.
I like the bishop cause I can put my guitar pick in the little slot
Admit it: if you voted pawn, you just did it to be hipster…me included.
Who would pick a pawn...
On a side note, every piece looks good in its own way (except pawn bc of the lack of detail) but if you look at Indian Chess pieces they are much better. The bishops are camels, rooks are elephants, knights are horses, and the rest are pretty much the same.
tottaly the knight!
Of course a lot of people chose the knight but it is the one piece which has the highest 'fail' rate for those people who make a turned chess set in wood.
If you have a band saw and a lathe it is not so difficult to carve a knight using a 6" sanding plate made of wood and thinned off at the outer edge.
I have videos on my website (chessspy.com) showing this method.
Any one interested can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
