if you have something pinned in front of your opponents king, say a knight and you want to take something with your king but its protected by the piece that can't move can you take it? i know you would be moving into check but if the other piece can't move does it count as check?

I like to think of it this way; If black moves his King where it would be checked by white's pinned piece, let's say it's a bishop here and it is currently pinned to it's King by black's rook then the pinned bishop would leap forward to smite the black King and soon as he is smited his whole army literally crumbles, becoming piles of dust on the battl ...[text shortened]... erise the white King because he and the rest of the black army would be just piles of dust.

Sounds like the King against King problem to me. you cannot chack the enemy King with yours...

And it's just a very bad time then to explain the rule when it happens - lot of tension.
I always make sure that the en-passant and promotion of pawn is agreed, but usually forget to have that king checking king bit.

What kind of people do you play with?

The point being to avoid harsh feelings at the end of it.
It just for the fun anyway even if nobody likes to loose.
Signing a paper! That's extrem now. I surely dont take it that seriously.
Originally posted by hahahaaaaNo the king can't castle.
There is a flip side to this. A king normaly can't castle through a check, but if the piece is pinned, it can. So it is odd that you can't sit your king on a square that would be check if the piece was unpinned. But that is chess and cest la vie.
