Chess King is a two-player logic puzzle game played on a 22 x 14.5 rectangle shaped board, each side has its own 3×3 checkered array of 9 squares numbered counter clock-wise 1-9, with five being dark squares and four being light squares.
Each player has 9 pieces: one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, one King and one pawn. The Kings and pawns are the same color but color independent from the rest of the pieces. Each of the six piece types move just like your traditional chess pieces with one exception, the King can only move in a counter clock-wise manner around the center square of the 3×3 array. It should also be noted that the King is prohibited from moving backwards. Unlike your traditional game of chess the pieces in Chess king are not used to attack and capture the opponent’s pieces, they are used to provide a clear path for the King to complete a full rotation around the board.
