Option-Suicide Chess

This game you can destroy your own pieces. Please read the rules section of this document to see how

I know the game Kamikaze chess, and one that white has small advantage to destroy your own pieces, but I have idea to compound it and make it optional, and do for both players.






Follows rules of FIDE chess, but:
  1. You may capture your own pieces.
  2. Whenever you capture (except with the king), you may optionally destroy the piece capturing it as well.
  3. Instead of moving, you may immediately destroy one of your own pieces (except the king).
  4. You lose if you have no legal moves.


Please tell me if anyone has played this game. See if you like to play.
