This wasn't approved just now when I checked; since Fergus evidently meant to, I've approved it now.

But it's not clear to me from the description what happens when a king moves from the first or last rank: just no piece is created? And do I understand correctly that just moving a rook around the board will generate lots of queens? If so, it probably doesn't qualify for the Usual Equipment category.

I revised the wording of the rules a bit and approved this page.
