Though not the most important player on the board, it is crucial to the game. It is promoted, sacrificed, or used as a strategic obstruction. On occasion, it can become the queen, but that is very rare. It is part of the overall strategy – win the game at all cost. The strength of the pawn is that it is expendable. What would the game be without the pawn? Or the world?

For the pawn, the game becomes all important. It is the game.
