Default Sjeng Cheating?

No, it's crazyhouse. (There just haven't been any placements yet.)
The "White hand" and "Black hand" indicate that.


Those are always printed, as you can easily verify. If it were
crazyhouse, there would be a valuation for the pieces in hand printed
there instead of 0.

If it is a crazyhouse game, the "Razor drops" number will increase.

The restriction that you cannot drop with mate is weird, too.


Sjeng can drop with mate, but the player can't. This is considered
"fair" by whoever wrote the code.


The person who wrote the original code didn't put this restriction,
which is why he finds it strange that it was added :-)
