To be clear: in the Brandubh2 rules, a single piece can capture the King when it is adjacent to the throne? That would seem to follow from
Blacks win if they manage to capture the king before he escapes. The king is captured like all other pieces, except when he is on the throne.
To capture the king on his throne, the attackers must surround the throne by standing on the four cardinal points. Everywhere else on the board the king is captured as a normal piece
For example, when the King is on D3 and a black piece moves to D2?

Code: Select all

But that cannot be right - it is not how Brandubh2 is currently implemented, and it would make it significantly harder for the king to ever leave the throne.

I guess the situation you described is covered by section 3 of the rules where it states "The throne is never hostile to the king". Hence the king on D3 is safe when a black piece lands on D2.
