Betza points out his first series of articles on ''Chess Different Armies'' was published 1979, thirty years ago. Almost 15 years ago in year 1994, as Ralph Betza's own page before CVPage existed, Augmented Different Knights suggests Knight enhancements. All of the compounds actually are already used scattered throughout CVs recorded the same year 1994 within Pritchard's 'Encyclopedia Chess Variants'. ''Augmented D.K.'' here by its 15th line of text establishes N+D, N+F, N+W, and N+A. We are starting to search for triple compounds of them to include Knight. Comparison is intended with recent (N+A+F) and (N+D+W) being studied concurrently in Piece Values conversations and also as to naming.
