Learn everything about castling in chess, the special rule that will keep your king safe (and your friends impressed)!
Can you imagine moving your king two squares instead of just one? What about having your rook jump over other pieces? And what if you could do all of that at the same time?
That may sound like you would be cheating, but that is not the case. You are just using the special castling rule—one of the most critical rules in chess.
This rule allows you to move your king to the side of the board and bring your rook into the game at the same time. It is something that you should try to do in almost every game to avoid getting in trouble.
Be careful, though! If you want to castle without others calling you a cheater, you must know exactly how this rule works. Watch this video where FunMasterMike goes over everything you need to know about castling and when you are allowed to do it.
After that, you will be ready to start castling during your games to impress your friends! Just remember to keep this video with you at all times so you can show it to your friends in case they think you are making rules up.
