A clever variant by my cyberfriend, Jens Niemann. You may reach him at jens@sepic.org

Only eight out of fifteen units (four must be pawns), plus the king, can actually capture. Sacrificing a non-capturer against a unit reveals whether it can capture. Non-capturers still give check and mate.

You choose first who will be your capturing pieces. You play white.
