Does anyone have a copy of the rules for this game? Thanks
[These are translated from the french rules which came with the game]
Rules of the game:
--- 1 ---
Queen, Tower, Bishop, Knight
The players take the four pieces of their color and place them in turn on the board, trying to place them in a strategic way, knowing their value and their movement, in order to avoid losing them too quickly. As soon as the 8 pieces are placed, the players can move one their pieces in order to capture those of the adversary as fast as possible.
Goal of the game: To keep the most pieces in play. The game is over if no captures are made in 5 consecutive rounds. The winner is the one whose pieces has the highest sum of values.

Tower, Bishop, Knight, "Queen-King"
In this alternative, the queen moves as a King. The objective of this game is to protect the King so that it is not put in position "checkmate". The Queen-King is in "check" when she is threatened to be taken by an opposing piece. The attacker must then announce "check". If the attacked player cannot prevent his Queen-King from being taken in the following turn, it is "chechmate". It can happen that a player has it's pieces blocked, and that he cannot move his Queen-King Without putting itself in "check". In this case, it is "stalemate".
Goal of the Game: To put the opponent in Check-Mate
--- Value of the pieces ---
Queen : 5
Tower : 4
Pawn : 1
-- Movement of the pieces ---
All the pieces move exactly like in ordinary chess, with one exeption: The queen-pawn. In Chess-Quito the pawn can move one square forward AND backward, and capture in all four diagonal adjacent squares.
