Glinski's Hexagonal Chess
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once
The most popular hexagonal chess variant.
Orthogonal moves are along any of the
three directions. Diagonal moves are
to the nearest square of the same color.
Pawns move and capture as in FIDE chess,
including initial two steps & en passant.
For now, pawns promote only to queens.
There is no castling in this variant.
