The Queen and Bishops are replaced by Ferz and Elephant. Pawns start on the third rank. Promotion happens on 6th rank. Promotion always to Met.
It is not possible to force checkmate on a bare King with just a single Met, Elephant or Knight (in addition to your own King). Two Knights or two Mets cannot do it either.
