With helpful feedback from John Leslie, the preset for Hostage Chess should now be enforcing the rules correctly. The previous Hostage Chess preset, no longer included on this page, allowed Pawns to drop on the first rank, it failed to handle Pawn checks on the last rank correctly, and it erred in a few other details.
