Game Courier Logs for Games of Cleopatra Chess

In this Ordinary Cleopatra Chess Variant, the Cleopatra is just an ordinary piece, in that it can be captured. Cleopatras are the only piece flipping pieces though. The other pieces can all capture and check the king and one wins either by checkmating the king or by changing the king's colors.

In Ordinary Cleopatra Chess, pawns can't be flipped, only pieces. Cleopatras can cause each other to turn color and they can capture each other and other pieces and be captured by any piece.
