Don't use two boards... I suggest you download Rubble Chess (another one of
my inventions, Z'd by Peter Aronson) and take it apart to find out how it
worked. All you need to do is make variants of it where the <foo> leaves
behind Rubble Pieces, for <foo> being any chess piece. (I don't think pawns
would work very well, but...) You can also make special starts where the
board starts full of walls (rubble chess start), etc...

Just as a note from the author: Ed's variant of doing queen attacks does
work well, also. But don't get too trigger-happy- it's good defense. Make
sure you don't get blindsided by a bishop in the classic variant!

The major downside to the queen shot variant is that then you can't
reasonably use a bishop to move in for the kill; you pretty much have to
lose two pieces to the shotgun, unless you use knights well...
