Jason Shields, 1995. Capturing a unit destroys both units, the square, and all adjacent units. There is no en passant capturing.

In May 2002, I fixed an error, and the machine now recognzies that a square has been destroyed when considering whether a capture will place one's king in check. Sorry for any inconvenience.
