Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

Old proprietary game by Tino Games. Draw a card to determine what piece can be moved. The deck was 10 King, 10 Queen, 10 Rook, 10 Bishop, 10 Knight, 25 Pawn, 25 Any. Castling is a king move. If you begin in check, first get out of check, then draw a card. If you cannot move, pass the turn.

Thanks to Jeremy Williams of Barcelona, Spain for help with the debugging.
