Indian chess the king makes a knight's move, and may only do so if he has not been checked. When making this move the king may not cross any square commanded by an opposing ·piece, nor may he move into check. In the first game either player may make the first move, but for the second game the winner of the first has the move. 1 Another very curious rule is that onlookers and visitors may express their opinions regarding the moves, and the players may not object. The onlookers have also the privilege of pointing out an illegal move.
