What time is it?

In the Over-The-Board game of chess usually they count the strength of the pieces with measure unit the one (1) pawn.
(Of course this is quite simplistic, since the strength of a pawn is greater as the pawn gets near its promotion line, but we can overlook it for now).

The Bishop and the Knight have worth three pawns each,
the Rook has worth five pawns,
the Queen has worth nine pawns.
The King has infinite worth, since the game ends when it is certain that the King will be dead in the next move.

If you have postponed it, now is the time to learn chess! You will have only advantages.

(I have found this picture in the internet, without the name of the artist. It is a great work!)
