I'm not a 'serious' chess player, but I did enjoy this game the one time I'd played it. To form the 'board' (since there is no board), all pieces must be touching each other. You can not move a piece if that means leaving another piece without a neighbor. You can use this to your advantage by forcing your opponent into a position where a number of their pieces are locked up and unable to move.
