Keyles has the novel objective to get the King all the way across to the 10th rank. The King is handed back each time it is captured and usually has to start farther back than where he is captured. Quid pro quo is the maneuvre, a special arrangement for a King captured, in which another piece is handed over, to get the King back. Hey, another exclusivity for kings, Castling was not automatically popular right away.
