There are a total of 4 elephants in chess, including 2 black and 2 white. Elephants are given two pieces to each player. On the chessboard, castles are placed in the corner squares, horses next to castles, elephants are placed right next to their horses. Now let’s find out how the elephant goes and what its characteristics are.
Elephants can move as much as they want in the cross-direction unless there’s an obstacle in front of them. Elephants can never move straight. If a stone of its own color comes in front of the elephant on the way to motion, it goes all the way to the empty square in front of the stone and stays there. If a competitor gets in front of a stone, the opponent eats the stone and settles in the square of the opposing stone. The elephant, which starts the game in black square, is located in the black square throughout the game. The elephant, which starts the game in the white square, is located in the white square throughout the game.
In chess, each stone has a star based on its severity and strength. The more stars a stone has, the more important and powerful it is. The number of stars has no direct impact on the game. But the number of stars is important for the player to know how valuable that stone is. In the chess game, the Horse, like The Elephant, has three stars. You can use the “Guide Card” specially prepared for the elephant by getting printoutfrom the printer.
In this lesson, we learned in full detail how the elephant goes. You can also watch this lesson as a video if you want. Our next lesson is the queen who can go as far as she wants, unless there are obstacles in front of horizontal, vertical and cross-facing in all directions between chess stones.
