Thanks for your suggestion concerning applying Fairy-Max to my chess
variant. I have just starting looking at chess variant playing software and
there are a few. Before I download it and start trying to figure it out I
have a question.

My chess variation is different in that one side (white) has one King and
the other side (black) has two Kings.  There are, consequently, very
specific rules concerning checking the black King(s) and checkmate. For
example when black has two kings in play they are immune to check but not
immune if they are simultaneously checked. So I am wondering if this
circumstance would preclude the use of Fairy-Max?
