Soccer Chess I
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once
There are several other soccer chess variants. Of course Europeans call it "football chess".

If you kick the ball to an opposing piece, the opponent must kick it during your turn. White is not permitted to score just after kickoff.

twin threats of Bc1-e3-d4-d8 and Qd4-e3-e8.
I'm working on a machine strategy.
These are simple illustrations rather than strong opponents.
