    ♘/♞/knight: moves 2 spaces horizontally then 1 space vertically, or 2 spaces vertically then 1 space horizontally, and jumps over any piece in between that path.

    ♖/♜/rook: moves any spaces horizontally or vertically.

    ♙/♟/pawn: moves 1 space forwards if there's nothing in front of it, if it's the first move of the pawn, in that case it's allowed to move 2 spaces forwards if there's nothing in front of it, pawns can only take 1 space diagonally forwards and may not take directly forwards, and pawns may not take 2 spaces diagonally. If a pawn moved 2 spaces in such way that an enemy pawn could take if it had only moved 1 space, it can still take like if it only moved one space; This is called En Passant. En Passant can only be preformed the turn right after the pawn moved those 2 spaces.
