Haunted Chess. Missing description (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Tony,
the java game has just in common with my game the reappearance of a
spirit
or ghost once the capturing piece leaves the square.
Then, my spirits can move freely, but may capture living enemies only if
they are 'invoked', which means, in usual Chess, that their square is
defended by friend living pieces.
May be a small example ? (prefix 'S' for Spirit, W for white, B for
black)
1 WP e2e4 - BP e7e5
2 WN g1f3 - BN b8c6
3 WB f1b5 - BP d7d6
4 WBb5xBNc6  -> SBN c6 - BPb7xWBc6 -> hierarchical rule: SWB wins against
SBN
so remain on square c6 BP and SWB
5 WP c2c3 - BPc6c5 -> no check !
6 WQ d1a4 check by WB ! - etc...
