4. 20 white 1x1 blocks and 20 black ones
5. 4 round white things and 4 black ones
6. 4 white half triangles and 4 black ones

Step 2: Build The Board

this part is simple, just put all the black and white 2x2 on the grey plate like the picture.

Step 3: Building The Pawns

we're going to make 8 white ones and 8 black ones, the pawns aren't difficult at all. You take 1 round grey piece and on top of that you put a white (or black) 1x1 piece! repeat this 8 times for the white and 8 times for the black.

Step 4: Building The Knight

I guess that personally I would put heads and girl wigs on my queens, but hey, no one can deny you did a super job at conceiving all of this :-)
