This is a challenge game between @JunyJunebug and @Martin0. Martin0 (playing Black) is attempting to win the Championship crown from bulldog world champion JunyJunebug (playing White).
Rules of correspondence play (here) will be strictly enforced.
Game rules:Board: 10 x 8 (see image below).The pieces:Guard (G) - Moves and captures like a king.
Witch (W) - The witch is transparent to friendly pieces, and she also makes all adjacent pieces (friend and foe) transparent to friendly pieces (but pieces are not transparent for the witch). The witch does not capture other pieces, but she can be captured. Although pieces are not transparent to the witch, she is very agile; she combines the movement of queen, knight, and can jump orthogonally and diagonally two squares. Transparency of a piece means that other pieces can move, attack, and capture right through the piece.
Note the position of Black's king and queen are switched compared to classical chess. This is so the guard and witch are equal distance to each player's king and queen.
Castling:The rules of castling are similar as in classical chess, however, with the board 10 squares wide, the king travels three squares rather than two. The rook finishes adjacent to the king. All squares between the king and the involved rook must be unoccupied, with the exception of the witch (a witch is transparent to pieces in her own army so castling across the witch is allowed).
Misc: Pawns play the same as in classical chess. Pawns can promote to queen, rook, bishop, knight in addition to guard and witch. Promotions are unlimited (not restricted to pieces that have been captured).
Other rules of this game are identical with rules of classical chess.
Good luck to both players! JunyJunebug plays White.

@vickalan, a question about castling:
"All squares between the king and the involved rook must be unoccupied, with the exception of the witch (a witch is transparent to pieces in her own army so castling across the witch is allowed)."
Shouldn't this rule include all transparent pieces and not just the witch? Meaning I could castle over a piece standing adjacent to my witch?
Very logical to my opinion!
Wouldn’t that end up in the room or king on top of their own piece?
Transparency never means that you can end on the same square.
Yeah, that’s my point. That’s why it wouldn’t be possible.
example when it would be possible:
Here white should be able to castle long since the queen is Transparent. Neither the king or rook end up on the same squares as the transparent piece.
