We go back many years, to a game which had reached its most critical moment with White poised to win, on a day we now call 'Good' Friday.
It was here that Black played his infamous move, PxK... and actually removed the White King from the board!
The Tournament Arbiter was keeping a close watch on the play - He knew there was likely to be trouble! - and saw the grim deed. Now although it is clear enough to us that the White King is safe and cannot be captured, the wheels in chess sometimes move quite slowly! Whilst the Arbiter was deciding on the best course of action, the leader of the Black army did all he could to protect the foul victory, even getting guards posted around the box in which the captured King had been placed. Finally, on the third day, the Arbiter decreed that the move was not allowable. Firstly the Rules did not (and never have) allowed the capture or removal of a King, and secondly the guilty Black Pawn was itself making an illegal move.
So, on a day we now call Easter Sunday, the Controller put the King back onto the board! O grave, where now is your victory?!
In the Book which speaks of these events it is said that, because of that day, all who have been or are in White's army will also one day be brought back onto the board! After which they will be able to play FOREVER!
