Rules and pieces are the same as FIDE Chess except when pieces are mated, all pieces forcing it into mate are frozen forever.
Very simple variant but very interesting concept.

Do you mean when I piece is "attackable" it is frozen?
No, I mean that if any piece putting another piece into checkmate are frozen.

I don't understand because I think we are using the word Checkmate differently. When I say Checkmate, it's the end of the game because one King can make no legal move and is also being attacked. This is the win condition so it ends the game.

Other pieces can't be Checkmated or even put into Check... as only the King (or another Royal piece in some variants) can be put into Check.
