Against your royalty I attack,
Going black to white and white to black
And one by two or two by one,
Until I'm caught or the war is done.

THE TITLE GAVE IT AWAY.

CHILD'S PLAY! (I AM SURE CHILDREN STILL PLAY CHESS. AT LEAST WE DID WHEN I WAS A CHILD.)

Nice. My first thought was "War" played with a deck of cards but the clues didn't quite fit. Chess was the obvious answer after that.

Great teaser!

I think I am too impatient for these teasers. I play a ridiculous amount of chess and I quickly gave up on the riddle and looked at the answer. Then I said 'Of Course!!!' Loved it, even if I was impatient.

If you have ever played MOTAS you should know this one. I love to play chess so I knew it anyway. Thanks for the super teaser.

I love chess, that's what I said it was, didn't say knight.. O well. Fun teaser, a little easy, but still great if you don't want your brain to hurt too much!!!

Good one I knew chess, but had reach way back for the Knight. Haven't played in 50 years or so

Recognized chess ,but I did not get the knight . I thought it was really well written and i look forward to more of your teasers.

This was a well written teaser, but it was too easy for me. I knew it had to do with chess right off the bat. Maybe you could make your next teaser(s) a little harder? But like I said, it was a great teaser! Just easy.

Extremely easy. This is the fastest riddle I have solved. Read first line - Chess!! Second line - pawn or knight, third line - definitely knight!! Yeay!!!
Nice puzzle though!
