land in a chess game


Senior Member
Hi, there;
The context is about chess.
-------Chess is a two-player game. One player uses the white pieces. The other uses the black pieces. Each piece moves in a special way. One piece is called the king. Each player has one. The players take turns moving their pieces. If a player lands on a piece, he or she takes it. The game ends when a player loses his or her king. There are a few more rules, but those are the basics.--------
I don't know what the term "land" means?
Could you paraphrase the term or explain it?
Thanks a lot!

    I suppose you can think of an airplane: it takes off in one city and lands in another. Same thing here, the chess piece is picked up from one square and moved to "another," landing on that square.
