I like this idea. The rules might seem confusing, but looks understandable to me, and I can understand the reasoning why these rules are as it is. I would change it slightly to be what makes more sense to me, but this is only my opinion:
  • Pawn promotes only to full queen, same as the Queen in this game, regardless of where promoting at. (So, when you flipped, you automatically know what it is)
  • Bishop, Knight, Rook, promotes to the piece which changes its passive capturing to the gold general move, but otherwise remains the same.
  • Pawn cannot be dropped in file with another of your own unpromoted pawn, to make 2 in total; but if there is already 2 or more, then you are allowed to drop there to make the total more than 2.
  • A stalemate counting as a draw cannot be prevented by dropping a piece, but stalemate as win can do so.
