wow this game is lots of fun, i never realised how much fun it could be with
dice, though the computer does play some really really bad moves
sometimes, that isn't your fault.
all you need to do is take back it's move and play the right move for it,
if it is really obvious.
it would be good to also put a variant out where there are no teams,
everyone against everyone, with dice, with this set up.
yes i've seen your up-coming 'shatranj' 4 player, looking forward to
anyway, great game, pretty funny, heaps of fun, i feel lucky with the dice
concept, he he, so i especially love it. 
good job, oh, graphics are great too, nice 'enlarge board'.
