Event #122 Swapping Knights

Condition: At least 1 knight for each player

Knights can capture allied pieces, including the king. When a knight captures an allied piece, then that piece gets put on the square that the knight moved from.

If a piece gets put on a promotional square (last rank for pawns), then that piece will promote.

Pawns on the first or second rank can move 2 spaces forward regardless if they have previously moved or not.

Example 1:

White plays Nxe5. The white queen gets placed on f3

Example 2:

White plays Nxg1

Black plays Nxh7

Blacks pawn on f8 can later move 2 spaces forward if it wants to.

Example 3:

White plays Nxh7=Q+. The pawn on h7 gets placed on f8 and then promotes to queen.
