Check and Checkmate are useless

We should just let people actually capture (or miss capturing) the king. The same way we allow people to make provable mistakes in other sports. Just because it's very easy to prove that not blocking check is the right thing to do, doesn't mean that we should legislate it.

The game is not any better with check, and it's a lot harder to explain and implement. None of the strategy changes at all with the removal of check and checkmate, either.
