All pieces jump. Sorry to not have that clear in the rules.

I did not understand, how pieces moves: wich of these statements is right:
1. Bishop and rook don't jump, but knight do jump (as in standart chess,
but with limited range).
2. All pieces jumps.
3. Pieces don't jump at all.

I consider best suited to goal-capturing games are leapers, I believe, riders being too fast for an immobile object, and it is also not riddled unnecessarily with pieces, mine being very basic. My original game had no Kings, and they may be removed with suggestion. Those are reasons why I find my game novel enough so I would not discard this game's idea.

It's a bitter pill but, besides Melee, bears some resemblance too among others, in goal squares, to Brad Stone's (1996) Bombalot, Glenn Overby's (2002) Thronschach and Roberto Lavieri's (2003) Maxima. Also (1951) Joseph Boyer's Football Chess.
