i really like this game it has crowned rooks and chancellors (concubines) on a 14 by 10 board. i also enjoy the pice variety and it feels like the rutland rooks hold everything together bridging the gap between the rooks and the queens. and it feels like now the knights are more like pawns and as chess was a battle this is war! i love especially the stalemate loses for the mating player. and it also feels as if someone was careless enough they chould be punished and lose beacause stalemate is not a draw. but i also think though they should add in crowned bishops but never mind though the new pieces favor orthogonal moves. Maybe there could be an even bigger variant with crowned knights rutland's chess pieces and cardinals. do the rooks promote to crowned rooks?
