    (in chess)
    alfil masculine
    • Every chess bishop moves on a diagonal, and none of those on black squares ever move to white squares (in the same game).
    • Black simply sacrifices one of the bishops for White's remaining pawn.

    • Unfortunately for White, his queen is overworked; it is the only piece guarding the bishops.
