This is a great game. Just one thought: there would be no sensible way to color the squares if you slide them! :) Unless they're all the same color...

The Game Courier preset isn't linked to game's page.

In a different note, what if the game was played with Marseillais Chess
style? That is: at each turn, except white's first, the player makes a
move, move a square, than makes another move.

Having holes in the chess board is equivalent to occupying some squares by a 'barricade'. Moving a square into the hole is completely equivalent to moving the barricade oppositely (as solid-state physicists know very well). This allows for an easy, be it somewhat less exotic looking implementation of this game: beside the two sets of pieces there is a number of barricades that move as a Wazir, cannot capture or be captured, and can be moved by either side after the normal turn. In the variant where occupied squares may move, the barricades exchange places with anything they 'capture'.

i believe this new game is creative and will create a new challenge to those who call themselves chessmasters
