In the differences in movement from FIDE <BR> Chess, it says: <UL><LI>Pawns retain their basic movement properties, and <BR> gain the additional ability of being able to capture a piece that is <BR> diagonally behind them. So a Pawn may make an initial two-step, <BR> <strong>may move one square forward after that</strong> and may capture any piece <BR> that is diagonally adjacent to it in any direction.</LI></UL> However, in the section titled The Gameplay, it says:<BR> A piece which is currently in the Arena may ONLY move if it is to <BR> another space in the Arena and ONLY if it is to capture (no exceptions).
