All pieces can make switching moves, except with like pieces. 

The only move-type that is restricted is the 'takeover' capture. This is
restricted to Camels, Rhinos, and pieces adjacent to the semi-royal Camels
or Rhinos. I added this restriction to limit the complexity created by
takeover captures. 

I have only play-tested this game by playing both sides through a few
games using Game Courier, but I have just issued an open invitation to
anyone interested. Unfortunately, I did not have time to complete a ZRF
either.
