A sample game:<p> <ol><b> <li>Pe2- e4 Pf7- f6 <li>Sd1- e2 Pa7- a6 <li>Se2- f3 Ph7- h6 <li>Sf3- g4 Pe7- e5 <li>Sg4- f5 Pb7- b6 <li>Sf5- g6 Bf8- d6 <li>Sg6@ g6 Ke8xPf7 <li>Pg7xRh8Q Pa6- a5 <li>Qh8- g7+ Kf7- e8 <li>Qg7xNg8+ Bd6- f8 <li>Ph7- h8Q+ Pc7- c5 <li>Qg8xBf8+ Sd8@ e8??</li> <br></b>not getting out of check<b><br> <li>Qf8xKe8+ </ol></b> Note: in the above sample, the @ symbol has been used to mean 'deploys the corps.'
