Take & Make: Every capture ("take") must be complemented by a further step ("make":not a capture) by the capturing piece, using the movement of the captured unit, otherwise the capture is illegal. Pawns may not end up on their own first rank. Captures on the promotion rank lead to promotions only if the pawn is still on the promotion rank after the "make" part of the move. Promotions at the end of the "make" element are normal.

Anti Take & Make: every capture ("take") must be complemented by a further step ("make" - not a capture) by the captured piece (Kings excluded), which must move from its square of vanish (according to the wishes of the capturing side in case of options). The capture is forbidden if the captured unit have not possible move. Promotions at the end of the "make" element are normal.

Locust (L): a piece which moves only to capture (on Queen lines). It lands on the next square behind the captured piece, but the arrival square must be empty.

It was said that Winchloe first executes the make-part of the captured piece.
