I am reading from the original rules and I would like to add or clarify some items. There is no restriction on using the star squares for transferring two levels on the first move. Rule 2d. clearly states: 'A piece or a pawn which lands on a 'Star' squre on its first move has the option of transferring either one or two Levels.' CAPTURING Pieces are immune from capture by pieces on other levels. However, you are allowed to capture an enemy piece on a Star square and then jump to another level. The same options are open when a piece or pawn captures for the first time.

Checkmating one King wins the game. The idea is to make wins more likely and draws less likely. Note that a King fork is considered 'mate' if the forking piece is immune from capture. This is because you only have one move and need to protect BOTH Kings.
