[Karazhan] Chess event
Chess event is an encounter in Karazhan where the raid plays a sort of chess match against Medivh. The pieces represent units used during the First War. The kings are represented by King Llane Wrynn and Warchief Blackhand. The queens are represented by a Conjurer and a Warlock. The bishops are represented by a Cleric and a Necrolyte. Knights are represented by a Warhorse and Wolf. Rooks are represented by a Water Elemental and a Doomguard. Pawns are represented by a Footman and a Grunt.
Talk to your respective faction (Horde or Alliance) king piece to start the game. Each raid member can control any member of the chess board and each piece on the chess board has different capabilities. They don't all follow the standard movements you would expect from a chess piece on a chess board. You can dismiss your current piece and change to another piece, however, you will suffer a 15 second debuff during which you cannot control another piece. The objective is to kill the enemy King before they kill yours. At the end of the event, a Dust Covered Chest appears with the loot.
(Courtesy of wowwiki.com until Hestocklem writes his version. Further enhancements will be taken from your replies.)
The first moves you should make are to move forward the 4 central 'pawns' (in the front row) out 2 spaces. This will allow for your king, queen, and elementals to move forward. The healers (the units next to the king and queen) need to stay a few squares back from the king to main heal him. The king has a large frontal cleave, as well as heroism, which boosts nearby units' attack speed. The objective is to nuke the other team's healers (queen, elementals and knights are good for this), and then ignore all other pieces while moving onto the king--his health will go down drastically once they are dead.
A chest with the loot will appear once the enemy king is down.
Afterwards the pieces are reset and you can play a friendly game against your own raid. While playing, there will be a silence debuff in the chess room (preventing you from clearing the creatures leading to Prince Malchezaar) but as of 2.1 it is possible to reset the event by talking to the Echo of Medivh.

Re: [Karazhan] Chess event
A huge thankyou to Minidevil of the guild White Eagles (server unsure) for shooting me through an email and letting me know of their youtube.com videos of Karazhan bosses! I'm always interested in the fights from a Warlock's perspective!
