Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

Amalgamation of Shogi and FIDE Chess. Origins unknown, named by Ralph Betza. Captured units change side and can be dropped.

Promoted pieces revert to pawn status upon being captured.

You may drop pawns on the first rank or the eighth rank.

This differs from Crazyhouse because promoted pieces keep their status.
