Rules for File Sharing Chess

File Sharing Chess has been created by Jeff Kubach.

It is played on a standard chess board with classic piece set and initial position.

The rules as written by the author :

"As a move, you can swap the placement of your pawn with an enemy pawn if they are directly in front of each other (having no squares in-between).  After a pawn swap, the board will look as if the enemy pawns traded their squares without capturing and each continued along that file.  However, you cannot do a pawn swap move when that particular opponent's pawn is threatening any of your pawns or pieces.  All other standard chess rules apply."
