There is a nice freeware to play 'Hostage Chess': http://www.hostagechess.com/download.html

On the first start of the program I got an error message about non-existing directory, but after I created the required directory (Documente/HostageChess), it works without any problems.

The AI strength of computer opponent is pretty good already by 5 sec/move, so if you like Hostage Chess it is really worth to install.
