''Some people'' means himself also, the main modifier of Courier. Nuno Cruz refers to his own Courier de la Dama. So, Cruz now does not sanction adding the Modern Queen. Medieaval Gala from the same region of Europe is better lesser-known game and on 100 squares omits Knights. Here, with Knights on 96, it takes still poor Knight six moves to cross corners, with or without that Mad Queen.
