Ahh. I see it now.

First, pawns aren't pieces, so QxPxPxPxPxP... isn't going to work. But it does point out the difference.

Capturing *any* piece isn't going to earn you another turn. It has to be the current designated royal piece, otherwise nothing special happens. (It would be lunacy to pick as your next royal piece the pawn next to the one that just got captured.)

And, of course, the king is the first royal.

Thanks, folks.
