Chess PiecesChess Pieces\Queen

The Queen moves through the sides or through the corners (diagonal) of hexagons, in a straight line. The Queen moves in 12 directions across the chess board and is the most powerful chess piece.

Note that the Queen is able to move between and along the 3 diagonal grid.  These are the hardest to spot at first.  Notice how moves along the diagonal are NOT BLOCKED by any pieces not on the same diagonal grid.
