Joe is correct.  In Darren's concept a check to your King [not a King capture]
costs you a move and a piece.  So, as Joe states, QxP+ (or Q x anything check)
and then the game is likely over due to the domino affect.

In KR1 and KR2 the King must be captured (which in my concept,
the King losses his life,
but is reincarnated, thus the game's name).
This King-capture idea is a very important 
difference between my concept and Darren's.
