I'm playing this for the first time today (on a personally-made program) and I like it so far (though I'm not sure if it's good enough for a "Good" rating...). Though I'm at this situation where the only possible move is to use the king to block the crown prince. Since the crown prince doesn't capture, it seems fair to assume that it does not give check either and it is thus legal to use the king to block the prince.

Edit: The black prince is one step from the final rank but white could actually deliver check (white couldn't do anything more to prevent the prince's advance for now). If white does give the check, should black respond to it or just push the prince and win?
