[Retros] Are the King and the Rook pieces or what?

Sounds like FIDE, yes. For clarity, the discussion was about "illegal
castlings". Did the FIDE list those as well? I'm sure they did. Let's
name them "the Centipede rules" ;-)

I remember when FIDE were finalising the Touch-Move rules, and they
listed all possible combinations e.g. I touch my WKe1, WRa1 and WRh1
simultanously with a BRd2 and BPh6. Do I have to play "0-0, Kxd2, or
or can I play Rh5 or Rd1 etc etc?

For obvious reasons, we called these "The Octopus rules."
