Backwards Pawns

Backwards Pawns is exactly like regular chess, except for one thing: the pawn has the ability to move one square backwards into an unoccupied square, EXCEPT that it may not move into the back rank.

Note that a pawn that moves back into the starting rank has its optional two-square advance property restored.

En Passant and promotion are unchanged from regular chess.

This variant presents unique ways for blocking check and creating forks.
