The Presence Of A Queen

The Presence Of A Queen - Neang

Unlike the Western Chess, the Queen is the least powerful of all the major pieces in Khmer Chess.  She is as valuable as a Promoted Fish.  She may move one square per turn and only diagonally.  For the first move, it has the option to move two squares straight ahead provided that the Fish in front of her has advanced and the space is unoccupied.  She can capture the enemy piece if the latter occupies that square.
