Recycle Chess is a chess variant of the loop category. It means that some pieces which have been removed from the board can be brought back to the game and reused. There is a similarity with Loop Chess but the game strategy is completely different:
A player can capture own pieces (except the king) and place them back to the board in the following moves. There is the same restriction as for Loop Chess - a pawn cannot be placed onto first or last row.
For example, the white player can start the game capturing his own queen by the king and place the queen to any blank square in the next move.
A player can, just like in normal Chess, capture opponent's pieces, but such pieces cannot be reused at all. They will remain at the "captured pieces" section for the rest of the game.
A pawn, which reaches the last row, is not promoted to another piece, but it is removed from the game board.
