Golem Chess. Variant where the Queen is replaced by the Golem, a piece that must be captured twice to remove it from play. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Very interesting!

Half-golem capturing adjacent half-golem:  It says 'If a piece other than
a Golem captures a Golem, the capturing piece is removed from play, and the
Golem is replaced by a Half-Golem of the same ownership as the Golem.' 
But it also says 'A Golem or Half-Golem may always capture an adjacent
Golem or Half-Golem.'

What happens here?  And likewise, if a half-golem captures an adjacent
full-golem, is the capturing piece also removed?
