When playing Bughouse, suppose one board is in a position where the king is checkmated, if this were normal Chess. However, it would be possible to interpose a piece. No pieces on your board are available to intermpose. Can you "drop" a piece onto the space, saving yourself from checkmate?
What if you have no pieces available for dropping? Can you wait until your partner gives you one?
I know that answers may vary depending on local rules, but when played by whatever passes for "official" rules in America, what happens? The closest thing I know to a definitive set of official rules would be the rules used at the Bughouse tournaments held at the junior national championships hosted by USCF.
