The rule for the English variant says "Each mobile piece must move once before it can move twice", but it should say "Each mobile piece must move once before any piece can move twice". (Then the same change should be made for twice before thrice, of course.) Also, it would be clearer if the rules common to all three variants were listed first, and then the differences listed separately (perhaps summarized in a table, even). In particular, all three have the rule that you must escape check on the first move of a series, or else you're checkmated; and that the number of moves you get on your turn is equal to the turn number.
