speaking of chess (to eat the opponent's pieces)


Senior Member
Here, we use the equivalent word to eat in our language when talking about chess:

a) My queen will eat your rook.
b) My bishop will eat your knight.
c) I (with my queen) am going to eat your pawn.
d) or simply eaten! (after eating the opponents piece)

How would you say that in AmE, BrE, and other English-speaking countries?
