New wild variant: Loser's Chess

Wild 17 is loser's chess.  There are three differences from ordinary

  (1) If it is possible to make a capture move, then you must make a
      capture move.

  (2) If all of your pieces are taken (you have a lone king), you win
      the game.

  (3) If you are stalemated or checkmated (in the sense of ordinary
      chess) you win the game.

You can start a game of loser's chess by typing "match johnny losers".
(The same method works with bughouse or kriegspiel games, by the way.)

The old wild 17 (Power Chess with 7 queens per side) is now wild 18.
