|Protean Chess:||When a piece captures (King included), it takes the nature of the captured unit (without changing colour). A King capturing becomes a royal unit.|

64 variations to checkmate the white king
64 consecutive tasks, each multiple has a different solution game, and yet all multiples are connected by the same basic idea. Both the white and black inventiveness in the solution games is amazingly rich; there are also conversions (even all-conversion), sacrifices, zugzwang, hiding moves, and board-dominating moves to be seen. 1 piece alone can keep the king or a royal piece under control in Protean Chess, both for white and black, e.g. a king can even mate the other king (as a royal piece) alone!
