What happens when Pawns can go no further? Are they promoted, or must they
wait until they can be combined with something? You don't mention ny
promotion, but you don't mention no promotion either.

One way of getting round the 'is this really 45 squares?' question would
be to allow a taxi to end a move anywhere orthogonally adjoining the board
as well as anywhere on it.
