Robert,

Glenn and I went over the matter, and he is on target.  The opposing king
can be left en prize and must be taken.  The rule works too:)

Cheers,
Gary

Rating my own design is inappropriate.

I do rate the work done on this website, and in bringing this new variant
to it, as excellent.  Glenn spoted all the errors I had made, did a great
job of fixing them and making the Fidchell chess variant look pretty
here.

Thank you Peter and Glenn!

Cheers,
Gary
