Bland Chess 46

This is an idea from a comment in Bland Chess to make a 46-squares game to submit to the contest. This game is submitted to the 46-squares contest.


There are 2 missing squares. No pieces are allowed to move through or land on the missing squares.


Pieces in Bland Chess 46:


Mostly the same as chess. No castling or pawn double moves. Capture opponent's king to win. The players, prior to the start of a game, may replace one or both of their War Machines with either a Knight, or a Modern War Machine.
