Can you bring peace to the chessboard by placing eight queens onto the board but prevent them from capturing each other? In this online puzzle game you will be given a standard chessboard, and the 8 queens will be placed on the right of the board. According to the rules of chess, a queen can capture another piece on the same line in vertical, horizontal or diagonal direction. You can click and drag the pieces and place them onto the board, but note that they cannot be removed after settling. A queen cannot be placed if it is on a capturing line of another queen on the board. The number of queens you have put and the amount of time spent are recorded on the left of the screen. When no more moves can be made, the game ends. Conquer the queens and win their allegiance! Have Fun!

Use your mouse to place the queens on the chess board.
The Queen is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Each player starts the game with one queen, placed in the middle of the first rank next to the king. Because of the value of a queen, it is sometimes used as bait to lure an opponent into a trap by a queen sacrifice, as in a Fool's mate. Another tactic is to use the queen to threaten the opponent's queen, to either retreat or make a "queen trade" (losing both of them) to reduce the game to less-powerful pieces. The queen is often used in conjunction with another piece, such as teamed with a bishop or rook, where the pieces could guard each other while threatening the opponent pieces.
