As I understand it, Pawns on any halfboard but the one they started on
move
away from the join. This after all is a continuation of the direction in
which  they joined that halfboard.
A small point of correction: 'any two-player game' should be qualified
by 'with an even number of ranks', ruling out Shogi. This is a pity
given the advantages for one-Bishop games generally through the use of
three-point turns. Shogi would need a neutral one-rank strip, with two
4-rank part-boards added in each move.
