Follow the coordinates.

I am really happy with all your works and such creative chess boards and games.


It was amazing.

Today I propose 2 activities for the brave. Choose the one you prefer.

The first one is a game of coordinates:

As we can see in que label "The Class" dedicated to the move of the 6 different pieces and the positions on the Chess Board. Every single square in the Chess board has a name according to its line and column.

There is also a nick name for every piece:

K for the King
Q for the Queen
B for the Bishop
N for the Knight
R for the Rook
and with no initial for the pawns

the challenge I propose for you is to place some pieces on the chess board the way I show you with the coordinates:

First of all I give you an example with a pic.

These are the required coordinates:
I write them in white and a darker colour in order to distinguish them.

Ke1
a2
a2
Ng3
Ra4
c4
d5
Rh6

Ke8
Bc7
d7
e7
b6
a5
Qe4

And this are the positions on the chess board.



Now it is your turn:
These are the coordinates:

Ra1
Bc1
Ke1
f2
h2
Ne3
Qg3
a4

Ke8
Bf8
Rh8
a7
c7
Qb6
Ne6
h5

Now it is your turn… Cheer up!


The second activity is pure Chess game:

Place more than… Queens in the Chess Board.

Try to solve this problem and send a photo or video of “how to make it”.

All we know the Queen is the most powerful piece in the Chess Game. You can move her forward and backward as many squares as you need either in diagonal, vertical or horizontal.

They cannot jump over any piece and there are 2 Queens, one per team… At the beginning of the game but a pawn can promote into a Queen when reaches the line 8 for the white pawns and line 1 for the black ones. (See this link if you need)

I guess you already know this but… There you are the challenge. Place in the chessboard as many Queens as you can with this objective: None of them can be threaten.by any of the others.

Here you are some examples:


In this case I have placed 3 Queens, but there can be placed some more.
A hint: the move of the Knight can be useful for this challenge.


Enjoy the activities, don't forget to mail me if you have any question, and see you soon.
