    Move the leftmost pawn and the rightmost pawn first. You can move them 2 spaces forward, and then you can bring the rooks out. But you didn't hear it from me. They don't want you to know this.

    The pawns are your most valuable pieces. You can turn them into anything except a king.

    Every chess piece can move just a specific way. For example, a pawn pushes straight forward yet can just assault on a point, each square in turn. A knight's move is L-molded. The minister moves at a point yet can move more than each square in turn. The rook  can move just in an orderly fashion yet can go ahead, back or aside. The sovereign, the most impressive piece, can move toward any path for quite a few squares, however not two headings in a single move. What's more, the ruler moves at an impressive speed, as a lord should, each square in turn toward any path.

    To perfectly baked: Dude, you are so lame in your knowledge of chess. Castling...to either side of the board...has been a standard for over a 100 years.

    The first secret is that there are no secrets.

    Chess is NOT a game of 'secrets'. It is a game you can learn like any other skill.

    control the middle and develop your pieces.

    and if that isn't secret-y enough for you, how about this: the queen's rook and the king can be forked by the knight via the queen's bishop pawn square.

    or this: from the opening, the queen can get a check on the king via the a4 square and possibly fork pieces sitting anywhere on the 4 rank. this is the reason the queen's gambit isn't really a gambit.

    I'm no chess champion but "Castling" was something I learned from a low-bit computer match and - it being so rare it is almost like a Royal Flush in cards where - it's so crazy that the person on the other side (who is good and confident) screams that it isn't a real thing.

    At least these days we've got phones and Google to either confirm or deny something. 

    It's such a rare move in chess and it requires so many things to be in place - but I got so obsessed with it that I made it a priority to do (and remained true to the rules so that the implementation was legit) and I used it a couple times here and there and the other person was simply irate like 'You can't do that! You can't do that!'

    Royal Flush was another awesome thing.

    I did that against a crush I had and her dad - being a soft-spoken dude - patiently pondered then assumed that it was a real thing.
