Seite 237 - When a Pawn is first moved in a game, it may be played one or two squares ; but in the latter case the opponent has the privilege of taking it en passant with any Pawn which could have taken it had it been played one square only. A Pawn cannot be taken en passant by a piece.
Seite 244 - Pawn, and what is worse, has lost his privilege of castling, by being forced to move his King ; and although for a moment he had gained a Bishop for a Pawn, it was quite clear that he must lose a Bishop in return by the check of the adverse Queen at King's Rook's 5th square. It is true that he need not have taken the Bishop, but still his King must have moved, and White could then have taken the King's Knight with his Bishop, having always the better position. But now to 'proceed with the actual...
Seite 225 - No. 1 places his ball on the winning and losing spot — No. 2 plays at No. 1 — No. 3 at No. 2, and so on, each person playing at the last ball : unless it should be in hand, then the player plays at the nearest ball. 3. If a striker should lose a life in any way, the next player plays at the nearest ball to his own ; but if his (the player's) ball be in hand, he plays at the nearest ball to the centre of the baulkline, whether in or out of baulk.
Seite 76 - ... for as the ace may be calculated both ways ; it is rather above an even bet that the adversary's two first cards amount to more than fourteen. A natural...
Seite 237 - ... it been played one square only. A pawn cannot be taken en passant by a piece. XVI. A player cannot castle in the following cases: — 1. If the King or Rook have been moved. 2. If the King be in check. 3. If there be any piece between the King and Rook.
Seite 138 - BAGATELLE GAMES. THE following games are played on a board, which is usually from six to ten feet in length, and from one foot nine inches to three feet wide, lined with green cloth ; a slip of thin wood being placed round the inside of its upper end, to form a semicircle. There are nine cups let in level with the cloth, numbered one to nine, into which the balls are to be driven in playing the two first mentioned games.
Seite 238 - Should any question arise, respecting which there is no law, or in case of a dispute respecting any law, the players must refer the point to the most skilful and disinterested bystanders, and their decision must be considered as conclusive.
Seite 248 - This was your last chance, and its success should serve to convince you that in the most apparently hopeless situations of the game there is often a latent resource, if we will only have the patience to search it out. By taking the Bishop, Black has left your King, -who is not in check, no move without going into check, and as you have neither Piece nor Pawn besides to play, you are stalemated, and the game is DRAWN. If thoroughly acquainted with...
Seite 237 - If the King has been in check for several moves, and it cannot be ascertained how it occurred, the player whose King is in check must retract his last move, and free his King from the check ; but if the moves made subsequent to the check be known, they must be retracted.
Seite 118 - Never touch the squares of the board with your finger, as some do, from the supposition that it assists their powers of calculation, and accustom yourself to play your move off-hand when you have once made up your mind...
