External Link: Revised Chess

The only difference between "Revised Chess" and regular chess is the additional forward capture-capability of a Pawn positioned on the seventh rank. The revised Pawn, provided that it has reached the seventh rank, can also capture forwards. Due to this, passed Pawns are now more dangerous. In Revised Chess, drawish endgames will occur less often. Many theoretical endgames that have hitherto been drawn are now won. The additional capture-capability will also have an impact in the middlegame. It will not affect opening theory at all.

A Zillions program and more information is here.
