Tile Chess

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Tile Chess here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

American proprietary game by Jason Wittman, published by Steve Jackson Games. No starting kings adjacent to each other. Runners pass and check through friendly units. Breaking up the group of connected tiles is absolutely forbidden. Whoever captures a king takes over that army. I ignored the layered-check rule. Last player able to move wins. Draws are settled by Q=12, R=5, B=3, N=3, P=1, then who played first.
