Captive Kings. Created to obtain more wins and less draws with an anti-chess chess rule.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Yes. I meant to say that the since the white king is placed on the eighth rank (in the Black's territory), it must reach the fourth rank (White's own territory, any square between a4 to to h4). Similarly, black king must reach the fifth rank (Black's territory, anywhere between a5 to h5) from the first rank. The player who first reaches his king to the target squares wins the game.

In my sample game, the game ended in Black's favour because it reached it's own territory by making up to the fifth rank (h5) while the white king was a move away to reach it's destinated square.
