I have a new rule set similar to yours, although we play 4-Way Chess on the
Dessau board. Its called REGICIDE RULES, the king must be actually captured
rather than just check-mated. Even when check-mated a player still gets to
make a move even if moving into check, and sometimes check-mate can be
evaded, it is intense. After a king is killed the rest of his pieces
remain on the board and can not move except to capture. See the rules at
