You miss the part where you can make the aggrements if both sides feel if they can make the other side do something that would make them more advateges then before you can betray the other one also this action tooks one turn and the other need to execute the action in their turn and then you do the same what he wants to also you can betray him this up to you if you feel that you can trust him next time.

This could be placed in the notes, but this is not really a rule.  All you are really saying is that players can talk.  They could do this in Chess too.  But they do not have to do what they say they will do.

nyway yes this how i would have been able to do it more sorted out about the question, you cannot make a space backwards 2 tiles only one though im not so sure if its such a bug diffrents on the field though if you feel like that playing the game it can make a diffrance then im sure we can change it though i never played my self with that rule included

My question was not about moving two spaces backwards.  My question is when can you move two spaces forwards?  In chess, any pawn on the second rank can move two spaces.  But in this game, since they can go backwards, they can leave the second rank and still come back.
