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

I encountered recently by chance in Nicolas Giffard and Alain Biénabe's 'Guide des échecs' a fairy chess game called 'patrol chess' (1975 Meyenfeldt), where pieces have power to check or capture only if they are covered by friend pieces. They can nevertheless cover themselves other pieces. So my game could be seen as a mixture between 'patrol chess' and 'ghost chess'.
