The Drops: Turncoat Tag

Description

In these games, captured pieces are normally given to the player who captures them as his own pieces, and he may use a subsequent move to place a captured piece onto an empty space. Some games of this sort rely on reversible pieces whose side is determined by their orientation. Others may rely on switching pieces with extra pieces of the opposite color or on computer graphics.
