Stealth Chess -- review

Proprietary game. Here you play White. The two sides must guess the identities of enemy units. Identities are revealed upon capturing. Whoever captures the enemy king wins.

The machine will try to figure out, for example, which of your units is king and which is queen, and go after these. It will not cheat.

Obviously there is no promoting pawns.

I made the rule that White's first move cannot be a capture.
