Best Chess Pieces


The Top Ten

1 Queen Queen

Anyone who's played Chess knows the Queen's true power, only bad thing is when you lose her, then go pawn!

I was taught this piece as counsellor/prime minister. Anyway, yes it deserves to be on number 1. Most powerful piece in chess. - zxm

My favourite is the bishop since I can capture many of the opponents' pieces with the bishop but the Queen is awesome too - MLPFan

How is this even a question? It's obvious that the piece with the most movement options has to be the best one. - Treacle

2 Rook

Rooks aren't so dangerous and are more fun to play with. Your opponent's queen has great danger against you and your opponent's queen can be very annoying to you. However, rooks are a fun piece ton play with.

This is what rules at the end of the game.

Rooks are snipers

3 Knight

No body notice how many different combinations knight can have. It gives the moment where opponent say oh I just missed and didn't saw

One word: tactics. The double attacks are endless

Let the sneaky one win!

Symbol of FIDE! - yanzchenthebest

4 King

King should be 1st! Your whole game depends on it. Checkmate happens when your KING can't move and is in check. Sure, the queen will do the attacking, but the king is what you need to play with. If the king is this low, the pawn can become a queen. Can it become a king, NO! The king is the piece that you lose with, but you need it to play chess.

King should be above pawn. It is a very powerful piece in the end game - CBro7

The whole game depend on it

5 Bishop

Bobby Fischer's favorite piece was the light squared bishop. Its control over so many squares has allowed it to win several endgames.

It should be ahead of the Knight. Everyone knows that Bishops are worth more than Knights in open positions, and they're better than knights overall.

The bishops are my favorite pieces because they are cool strong pieces that can come out at the start.

With good strategy, the bishops, along with the knights, can be used to dominate the board.

Bishop as elephant. - zxm

6 Pawn

It's possible to win a chess game if you take away your bishops, knights or queen but try taking away all of the pawns and see how far you can get

Pawns Are Number 1 Better Than Queens

The importance of promoting pawns should not be overlooked.

" A pawn is brave never came back with out achieved a success ”
