Threat Chess, Attackers Chess and Victims Chess

This page contains one or more presets for playing game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Here I'm using the word "piece" exclusionary of pawns which behave normally.

In Threat Chess, the pieces retain their natural moves, and can move like any pieces they attack or that are attacking them.

In Attackers' Chess, the pieces retain their natural moves, but can also move like the pieces they are attacking.
