Follying, or; to Folly

Follying in Missionary Chess
Follying in Missionary Chess
Missionary Chess features a new specialty called Follying, whereby the Mission’s adjacent Bishop or Knight may be relocated to the Mission’s home square in the same turn of the Mission first vacating.

This is notated quite simply with the move of the Mission followed by the follied piece in brackets. For example, as a very first move of a game, we could write, Mh3 (N).

A piece may not be follied if it has already made its first move, or if the adjacent Mission has already vacated.

To perform a Folly, first make a regular move with your Mission, and then in the same turn, place either the adjacent Knight or the adjacent Bishop onto the home square of the Mission, now vacated.
