I just have some game questions.  Just started playing this wonderful game
with my son and am learning myself so I have some questions.  We have
proceeded as far as the rook game but can't go any further without some
answers so would appreciate some clarification.

what is the purpose of the pawn?  Can pawns capture other players other
than pawns?
When playing regular traditional game, can the king be captured and can
the king capture other players?  Which players can capture him and which
players can he capture, if so?
Can a rook capture a rook? The board shows them opposite of each other.

Thank you and look forward to your response.
