Bughouse HS (Chess Variation)

I'm not really sure if this belongs here because it isn't really a scenario; it's more just a different way to play.

Basically it's Bughouse Chess.

Set up is only slightly different from normal play. You need:

4 players divided into 2 teams
2 separate maps
4 armies (duh) of any point value drafted or pre-made doesn't matter.
All armies must have a hero that is 50-150 points.

The rules are simple:

1. Choose a 50-150 point hero to be the "King" (like chess) of your army. If the king dies you lose the map. The other map continues until a king is killed on that map.

2. When a figure other than the king is killed it is given to your teammate to be placed on the map he/she is playing under his/her control. Cards may only be placed when the full cards worth is killed (4 KoW, 3 KMA, ect). What sculpts you have do not matter (4 Axe wielding MacDirk warriors count as 4 MacDirk warriors).

3. When you turn over an order marker you may do one of the following:
A. Take your turn normally.
B. Place one full cards worth of figures. Figures may only be placed adjacent to figures that you control and that were on the board prior to this turns placement.
4. When a board is lost the figures on that board are not considered "destroyed." This would unbalance the placement rules and give to many options.

Bold was used to highlight the important parts of the rules; the rest is just clarifications. If there are questions don't be afraid to ask.

Hope you like it!

No blade of grass shall go unturned
Let those who have the daylight spurned
Tread not where this green lamp has burned.

Pretty cool idea, GreenLanturn! But this:

Does that mean that you may choose one of them or both? And does the second option have to be adjacent with a figure who has the order marker revealed?

I can't believe I missed that! I'll edit it. You may only choose to take that turn or place those figures not both. You may place figures adjacent to any figure you control; so you may place them to further lock down an enemy you are adjacent to or even to lock down a figure that is one space away from you (surprise attack!), but the order marker is forfeit when you place figures.
