Shatranj Preset for Game Courier

This Shatranj preset will enforce the rules of Shatranj, and it will spot check, checkmate, stalemate, and bare King, all of which win the game. It will also distinguish reciprocal King baring, which is a draw, from non-reciprocal King barring, which is a win. Click on the image to go to the preset.

This old preset does not enforce any rules.
