Good game. From our century it looks like hybrid of modern and ancient chess, altrough it's not. By the way, when this game was invented? Move of modern already was in game Grande Acedrex (this piece's name was crocdile), and they already was adjecent to king and piece, wich replaced queen (griffon). So which game used this piece first?
