This would ofcourse mean that you won't promote into a queen if you take your pawn to the 8th rank. That would gain you nothing and your opponent get another Queen possibillity. The strategies behind this game is rather fun to think about. You don't want to take all your opponents pieces 'cause you'll loose easier. I think I'll like it when I get around to play test it.

Nice concept and very cleanly explained, however the example might be flawed, since e1-d2 should be illeagal for it moves white king into check, because the black king has the backing of a queen so it can move as a queen and take take the white king in the next move. a black bishop instead of queen would work.
