Here comes the King!
Compiled by salokin
--*--

The king is in most games rather inactive. There's a good reason for this phenomenon: if it's captured, you're lost. However, there are some brave people who let their king attack. You'll see some og these games right here.
Always remember those two quotations:
"A King is a strong piece." - Wilhelm Steinitz
"If you can't defend youe King well, let him attack!" - Robert Steel
