In BlockChess the pieces start in a corner of the board. Pawns may move without a capture as any orthogonal step but they may capture using any diagonal step. There are no two step pawn moves nor pawn promotions. Castling does not occur in BlockChess. Other pieces and their moves and the objectives of the game are the same as those of standard chess. BlockChess uses pawns differently than standard chess.
