These are three rules which may be added to standard chess to create a variant in which draws are impossible:
- The two squares on which the kings begin are marked with an "X" and are throne squares. A player can win the game by mating his opponent OR moving his king to his opponents throne.
- No player may make a move which causes a previous configuration to be duplicated.
- If a play has no legal move, he loses. (This includes both stalemates and situations created by rule "2".)
