A conversion capture is a special type of capture in which captured pieces are not removed from board, but rather converted from your opponent's pieces to yours. Othello (Reversi) would a good example of this type of capture.

Please describe how the capture works. If there are numerous types of these capture types found, then this geeklist may be split.

A stone is moved one space to any adjacent (orthogonal or diagonal) cell with an enemy stone, which is captured.

Any adjacent enemy stones (orthogonal or diagonal) to a stone which has been captured by replacement are converted to friendly ones.

Played on NxN board.

Custodial like capture where "captured" pieces (one or more) are convert to player's color. Reversi type pieces would work well. The other option is to have 4(N-1) pieces so that "captured" pieces can be replaced on board.

Capture in two rules files by Wayne Schmittberger and Damian Walker indicate that pieces must be continuous like Othello. However the description of the game IN BGG entry allows spaces in line of capture.

Black and white each have 24 en and a tower. The tower cannot capture. Men capture via a custodian like capture where two of the player's pieces flank an opponent's piece. The opponent's piece is then converted to the player's color. Multiple captures can occur. For instance black moving into BW*WB results in BWBWB and Black captures two of white's stones.

Similar mechanic as in Othello, but pieces in a square around the placed piece are flipped, except for so-called 'permanent pieces'. Permanent pieces always stay the same color after placement.

Players roll six side die and place in 4x4 grid. When players place a die in a space horizontally or vertically adjacent to an opponent’s die, they check the numbers on the two dice that are facing each other. If the number on the current player's die is greater, the opponent’s die is converted to the current player's color.

Game is slightly different from Shannon in that a rolled die cannot be "stored" for future play.

Played by placing pieces on an 11 by 11 board. If you form a rectangle with 3 of your pieces and one of your opponents pieces, your opponent's piece is converted into one of yours.

Shogi is a Japanese game descended from Chess. It's unique rule is that captured pieces are actual prisoners and their captor can enter them into play on his own side instead of moving a piece on their turn.
