I really like the idea of the game. I think it is very thought-through and
I only think that the definition of check and checkmate should be altered,
so grammatical incorrectness is prevented as is King-capture in western

A player is in check if he is under one-move-threat of having no
(travelled)king while his opponent has a resoluted position.
A player is also in check if he is under one-move-threat of having a
grammatically incorrect position.
If the one-move-threat is not answerable, the player is also in checkmate
and looses the game.

This definition provides final positions that are always grammatically

In my opinion this rule would be more chess-like. What do you think?
