This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.

You start with a normal chess setup and two additional extra Pieces and two Pawns. Two your extra Pieces and 2 Pawns are in reserve. On your turn you can either move a Piece with the usual chess rules or place a piece from the reserve at any free position on the last row of the board. White: horizontal row 1; Black: horizontal row 8. When a player first moves a piece from its original square, that player has the option of placing the the extra Pieces (guest stars) Archbishop or Chancellor on the vacant square, as part of the players`s move. You can move extra Pawns to the second row only. In this zrf.file - 1.Extra Piece you can drop any free square in the last rank in any time. 2.Dropping Piece or Pawn to be considered as one move. 3.Pawns has to be promote only to Classical Chess Pieces (not to extra dropped Pieces). 4.Extra Pawns can to drop on the second row on the empty squares. In this situation all of a great heritage Classical Chess will be unchanged. And quantity of chess Pieces are equal to the Pawns 10 = 10. The game is good balanced. I think it is very good variant of Capablanca Chess.Extra Pawns are increasing resource of defences against very powerfull Pieces.
