Cool variant. The extra basic rules are slightly complex, but still, cool variant.

It may be worth giving here the relative piece values for Crazyhouse that I once saw on someone's blog; these values just might actually be of use in assessing the [tactical] usefulness of pieces in games of Hostage Chess, in a general way, too: P=2; B=3; N=3.5; R=4; Q=6.
