Cheating Chess

So I created a chess variant.

Most Current Rules
Plays as normal chess, except as follows.

Instead of checkmate, you lose if your king is in check at the end of your turn.

On your turn you may declare an illegal move (moving a piece to a space it can’t legally reach.) If you do, roll a 6 sided die and follow the result below.
1: Your piece is removed from the game, if it was your King, you lose the game.
2: If your piece is a pawn attacking a queen, remove it from the game.
3,4: Nothing happens.
5: If your piece is a pawn attacking any other piece, or a knight, rook, or bishop attacking a queen, then nothing happens. If not, your piece successfully makes the illegal move.
6: Your piece successfully makes the illegal move.

You may not move onto one of your own pieces.

Reminder: Capturing your opponent’s King makes it impossible to put it in check, don’t do it.

  1. Added the rule that you can't capture your own pieces! Playtesting indicates that wouldn't be fun. Not to mention the currently game-winning option of simply capturing your own king (making it impossible to put you in check/checkmate)
