Does anyone know the castling rules for this game? ZoG is now defunct, and I don't visit Cowplay. All the basic rules must be similar to for Capablanca Chess', but the odd position of the kings in the setup (which also has dark squares in the players' lower right corners) makes it difficult to guess at the castling rules.

[edit: apparently ZoG is not defunct, after all. The Zog link for Alekhine Chess gives the following rules for castling: "When castling, the King moves to the square next to and on the inside of the Rook, then the Rook moves to the square next to and on the inside of the King."
