As FIDE chess with addition of the One Ring. When the first white piece is captured, White chooses the ringbearer from among the pawns. The White ringbearer can always move one square forward straight or diagonally. Taking the ring to the last rank without being captured immediately counts as checkmate. Black ringbearer can move as queen. White non-pawn ringbearers which are captured become black pieces exchanging places with their captors.
