Chessgi is a hybrid of Chess and Shogi, in which captured Chess pieces may be dropped back on the board, as in Shogi. The side areas shown below are for holding captured pieces until they are ready to be dropped. Here are some presets for playing Chessgi on Game Courier. These all enforce the rules and spot check, checkmate, and stalemate.
