The knight is a piece in the game of chess, representing an armored cavalry. It is normally represented by a horse's head and neck. Each player starts with two knights, which begin on the row closest to the player, one square from each corner. A knight is approximately equal in strength and value to a bishop. The bishop has longer range, but is restricted to only half the squares on the board. Since this chess piece can jump over pieces which obstruct other pieces, it is usually more valuable when the board is more crowded.
The knight move is unusual among chess pieces. When it moves, it can move to a square that is two squares horizontally and one square vertically, or two squares vertically and one square horizontally. The complete move therefore looks like the letter L. Unlike all other standard chess pieces, the knight can jump over all other pieces (of either color) to its destination square. It captures an enemy piece by replacing it on its square. The knight's ability to jump over other pieces means it tends to be at its most powerful in closed positions, in contrast to that of a bishop. The move is one of the longest-surviving moves in chess, having remained unchanged since before the seventh century. Because of this it also appears in most chess-related regional games. The knight moves alternately to light and dark squares. It is the only piece that can move at the beginning of the game without first moving a pawn. For the reasons above, the best square for the initial move of each knight is usually one towards the center. Knights are usually brought into play slightly sooner than the bishops and much sooner than the rooks and the queen.
