Marseillais Chess presets for Game Courier

Marseillais Chess is a vintage multi-move variant, in which each player makes two moves per turn. In the variant called Balanced Marseillais Chess, White makes only one move on his first turn. This is to reduce the opening advantage of playing White. Each preset will enforce the rules and spot check, checkmate, and stalemate.
