Omega Chess Extended

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.

Same as Omega Chess, except:

Omega Chess Extended variant includes additional move called Covering. This move is executed similarly to Castling but with King and Champion rather than with Rook. This move resolves the problem of unprotected pawns after Castling on the bigger board of Omega Chess.

Also there is Guarding move from Omega Chess Advanced. Guarding is similar to castling but it involves Queen and Rook rather than King and Rook. All other principles of castling apply to Covering and Guarding - neither of the pieces can be under attack before and after the move.

Note: this implementation also offers the standard Omega Chess!
