Shatra -- Chess from the Altai region of Siberia. Captures are by jumping.

I had all pawns promote to queens.

I have not implemented all the fine points yet. Reserves still in the fortress can capture, to squares inside and outside the fortress, and I waived the requirement that they be placed at the next opportunity. I found this didn't make much difference.

There are bugs in the program. If it locks, hit "restart".
