Ready Chess. Pieces cannot capture right after capturing, they have to be restored first. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

There is one oddity about this, the use of the term ready. Surely the ready pieces are those that are able to capture, and those which have just captured are UNready. Given that terminology, the rex inclusive version might be particularly appropriate as a representation of the reign of Ethelred the Unready in pre-Norman England.
