Pieces

Rules

  1. You lose if you cannot move.
  2. You must make 1 whole move, may be split into fractions as small as you want (see Fractional Chess ).
  3. Opponent pieces you capture are put onto your bench, as in Shogi. Drops may only be in your first 5 rows, and they cost the fraction of the part of piece dropped. You may drop on top of one of your pieces of same type, to add to the fraction.

Notes

Any questions? I have never played. When/if I do, (or you do!), I will list more here.
