    Yeah! If you want to be unrealistic, go the whole hog. And who's to say this couldn't happen in a game? :p

    Whatever andernach chess is, I assume it allows colour changing pieces and multiple kings.

    Andernach = pieces change color after they capture. It does not allow for multiple Kings.
