Chess: The Game

  • Why are we not allowed to capture the King? Why do we have to corner the King in a checkmate? Why can't you kill him if your opponent did not notice that his king was in check? Because like in real life, killing the opposing King on a battlefield is not very profitable. It is much more useful to capture him alive and ask for a ransom, thus preventing a new King and getting a huge sum of money.
  • The King can move one space in any direction, compared to the Pawn who can move one space forward. The King is just a Pawn who has more opportunities and is given more weight in the game's rules.

  • Florence's leitmotif is "Nobody's Side," a song about her Heroic B.S.O.D.. Elements of the song are common throughout many of her other songs.
