Win by making your opponents pieces of one type extinct.

The game carries very natural notions of check (last piece of a kind under attack) and checkmate (unavoidable check). So castling under check hurts the eye a bit, unless one has a second (promoted) king. But if one forbids castling under or through check, one should also forbid castling when the rook is attacked when it is the only rook on board. I played correspondence games in the NOST association and there castling under check was allowed, as Wayne Schmittberger recommends. Still, I would rather recommend to disable castling completely. But of course, the inventor gets precedence over my opinion :-) One must be conscious that another feature of not wanting to talk about check and checkmate is that stalemate becomes a win for the stalemating player, because the opponent is forced to commit suicide. This one doesn't bother me at all, since I dislike the stalemate rule anyway.
