Clockwork Orange Chess. Captured pieces are replaced with non-capturing counterparts. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

It is part of the meaning of non-capturing that non-capturing pieces cannot check the King. After all, check just means that the piece would be able to capture the King if it were the turn of the player with that piece. If non-capturing pieces could check the King, that would have been stated explicitly as an exception to the non-capuring nature of these pieces, but it was not.
