I think this needs a little clarification.  It says:

The objective is to checkmate the opponent’s “0” by attacking it so that it has no safe positions to move to.

But it also says:

“Zero”: Stay still, moves and captures 0 steps.

So can the 0 move if attacked?  Or must an attack on it be resolved by capturing the attacker or moving another piece in the way?  (In which case, any double-check would automatically be mate).
