Here's what should work: Place this line in each post-move section: set BCAF or (>= rank dest 2 and <= rank dest 7 and >= file dest 2 and file dest 7) (>= rank origin 2 and <= rank origin 7 and >= file origin 2 and file origin 7); Place these lines in each pre-move section: if #BCAF: set BCAF join chr + ord c rand 0 5 rand 3 8; capture #BCAF; endif; It is important that the actual capture occur in the pre-move section, so that a player will not know which space a piece will vanish from until he has verified his move. Note that I recycled the BCAF variable for two different purposes.
