The rule is actully well thought-out and quite original. This is the only
game I'm aware of (with one royal piece) that provides for both checkmate
and King capture. The one-turn penalty for allowing the King to be
captured is exactly right--by making the opponent actually capture your
King, you have required him/her to use an extra move vs. checkmate, so the
rules require you to give that move back. Well done!

This looks interesting, but there's one point of the rules I find confusing: you talk both about the King being checkmated -- which is generally used to mean an inescapable threat to capture but not actual capture -- and being captured. Which is it?
