I recently played a game of this and found it to be quite fun and very challenging. It is in the category of Switching Chess and Swap Chess; However, Rooks can only swap places with Bishops (no matter where they are on the board), Queens with Knights, and Kings with Pawns. I'm not sure if a piece pinned to the King (say a Queen) would be allowed to swap places with a Knight. I would hope not... but do not know. Anyway, a very nice game with limited swapping. The fact that Kings cannot swap while in check is an important aspect of the game. Great job, Adrian.
