How to Castle in iPod Chess


While the iPod does not come with a built-in chess game there is a chess game available for most versions of the iPod called "Chess and Backgammon Classics." This classic chess game allows players to compete against the computer or against another person. It also has a quiz mode and a famous matches mode. Like all chess games, you can castle in iPod chess if you move your other pieces to their proper positions for castling, which is a move involving the king and rook pieces.

  • Turn on "Chess and Backgammon Classics" for your iPod.

  • Move your king's pawn 1 or 2 spaces in front of the king. Move your queen's pawn if you want to castle on the queenside.

  • Move your king's knight to position F3. Move your queen's knight to castle queenside.

  • Move your king's bishop in front of the king. Move your queen's bishop to castle queenside.

  • Move your queen out of the way of your king to castle queenside.

  • Move your king to G1 to castle on the king's side or B1 to castle queenside. The rook will move automatically to the space next to the opposite side of the king.

Tips & Warnings

  • If an opposing piece has the king in check, you cannot castle.
  • Do not move your king or rook before you castle.
