It looks as if it might mean bringing one's king to a space adjacent to the opponent's)? Would be not unlike Bachelor Chess (and a number of Gilman's) in that respect. Hence the commment about kings meeting on “their” — i.e. ‘one's own’ — half of the board, the case of 4th/5th ranks, and the note about “approaching” the opposing king.

Also the fifth paragraph remains given twice

I modified the formatting of the rules and removed the redundant text, but I do not understand this game. Rapprochement is not a common everyday word, and even after looking it up, it doesn't help me understand the object of this game.
