Dave's Silly Example Game

Dave's example game is just a 2x2 board with Kings and Queens.


| k | q |
| Q | K |


Each side has:

1 King (which moves as in normal chess)
1 Queen (which moves as in normal chess)


Same as in usual chess, but no capturing is allowed!!


A rather silly game that has no legal moves.
