Play Witchess

Witchess is exactly like chess in all respects, except for the fact that is doesn't have castling, check, or en passant capture. And the pawns can move three spaces on their first move. Oh, and there's an Ox, which is like a queen that can't capture opposing pieces. And also there are Witches. But other than that it's exactly like chess.

Piece Image Rules
Pawn Moves 1, 2 or 3 squares forward on their first move, otherwise 1 square forward. Captures diagonally.
Ox Moves any number of squares horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Cannot capture.
Knight Moves L-shaped by going 2 squares up and 1 square across (any orientation).
Bishop Moves any number of squares diagonally.
Rook Moves any number of squares horizontally or vertically.
King Moves any direction by 1 square. Unlike regular chess, the king can move into a threatened square, is not compelled to move out of a threatened square, cannot castle, and the game is won by capturing the enemy king instead of checkmating it.
Queen Moves any number of squares horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
Witch Moves as a Knight or a Bishop?
