Crazyhouse on Game Courier

Crazyhouse is a two-player version of the team Chess variant Bughouse. It is basically Chess with Shogi-style drops, very similar to Chessgi, which is a hybrid of Chess and Shogi. The side areas shown below are for holding captured pieces until they are ready to be dropped. Here are some presets for playing Crazyhouse on Game Courier. These all enforce the rules and spot check, checkmate, and stalemate.
