SETUP:
Set the board like Chess.The goal is to Checkmate your opponents King.
Apply the rules of Chess plus these new moves:  
 
 
1. RULE TO COMBINE PIECES:
Use traditional Chess moves to land on the square of another piece of the same colour. These pieces are now combined.

Example: Move the Bishop (diagonal) onto the Rook's square. The combined piece is the Biook (Bishop + Rook).

    2. RULE TO MOVE COMBINED PIECES:
    A combined piece can move as either of it's joined pieces.

    Example: The combined Bishop + Rook (Biook) can move as either the Bishop or the Rook.

    3. RULE TO SPLIT COMBINED PIECES:
    Split by moving either of the joined pieces away individually.

    Example: The combined Bishop + Rook (Biook) can split by moving either the Bishop or the Rook away individually.

    4. RULE TO PROMOTE COMBINED PIECES:
    If a combined piece containing a pawn makes it to the far side of the board it is promoted to a Queen. Both the joined pieces leave the board. 3 extra Queens included with set.

    Example: The combined Rook + Pawn (Roawn) reaches the far side of the board and promotes to a Queen.

    5. RULE FOR CAPTURING COMBINED PIECES:
    If a combined piece is captured the combined piece leaves the board, ie both the joined pieces.

    Example: The Rook takes the combined Queen + Knight (Quight). The combined piece (Quight) leaves the board.

    Start combining from your very first move (e.g. Bishop onto Pawn).
    Combine as often as you want. Combining is considered a move.
