Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Rules

No check/mate, win by capturing opponent's king. You can also drop as in Shogi, but no drop restriction. Dropped pieces are unpromoted. Some pieces can promote on the last row. On your turn, you can either make a Chess move or Ultima move, or drop a piece from your bench. No castling/en-passan. Pieces only promote when making a Chess move.
