What do you mean by "the inital ones"?  The pieces initally on the brouhaha squares?

In Brouahah, the rule is that you cannot move onto one of the squares except to capture a piece already on it.  I did this, rather than just saying you cannot move onto them ever, because I did not want a piece that never left the brouhaha square to be protected from capture or else it might want to stay there.  They are intended to be "launch" square from which you launch onto the board and then the square is gone.

Is the rule here different?  Your new addition is not clear to me.
