Huntsman Chess Preset and Rules

Groundskeeper Chess Preset and Rules

Great Hunt Preset and Rules: Same as Huntsman Chess, except the Knight and Camel move as in Groundskeeper Chess.

Thanks to Yu Ren Dong for Huntsman and Groundskeeper Chess.

I recommend the following rule for any of these: Stones can swap places with enemy stones as if capturing them. Pieces may NOT perpetually swap. The player who reverses the original position must take back their move.

The reason for this rule is to prevent blocking mates with Stones, since they cannot capture each other.
