Loop Chess




Loop Chess is a Chess variant that borrows incorporates the reintroduction of captured pieces into Chess.


The rules are the same as for Chess, except instead of moving a piece, a player's turn may be taken by replacing a captured piece on the board on any empty space. This piece is controlled by the player who replaced it. Captured pawns cannot be placed in the first or last row.
