vickalan
This thread is for a game of "Bulldog Chess with Witch" between foofooes and vickalan.

Board: 10 x 8 (see image below).
 
The pieces:
Guard (G) - Moves and captures like a king.

Other information on the guard can be found (here). (not particular to this game)
 
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.

Board Setup (gothic style shown):

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 (white: d1 or h1; black c8 or g8). Note files are now numbered "a-j" with "a" and "j" being the new flanks. As usual when castling, all squares between the king and the involved rook must be unoccupied, and this includes the square where the guard or witch is initially positioned.
 
Other rules of this game are identical with rules of classical chess.

Hi foofooes, neither of your knights can move to Nc3. Remember this board has the files numbered a-j (the leftmost file is the new a-file). Do you mean Nd3?

For queen castle does the king move 4 spaces?

vickalan

Hi foofooes, the castling rules are in the introduction. The king moves 3 spaces (either side). If you castle queen-side then your rook will finish on d1.

I'll play:
