Talk about a Rube Goldberg Chess Variant. At Sam Trenholme's 'List...' article, we say that one Super Chess is enough. Chess Variant Pages has maybe 40 or 50 of these, like Titan Chess, ''not worth the ether their printed on,'' to use Editor Joe Joyce's famous words. Worsening  Daniel's subpar CVs (we have not yet reached all of them), to go with overcomplexity, is bad writing. Try wading through this lengthy Rules-set.
72 pieces is supposed to be some mark of pride or badge of honour, one supposes. Ninja Pawns move differently across center line like stark Xiangqi, where it makes sense unlike Titan. Worst of all by our standards is lack of acknowledgement of Wayne Schmittberger and T.R. Dawson for similarity and priority of ''flying pieces.'' It is just not worth analyzing in more detail, when an inventor does not care enough or is so self-absorbed even to do a little homework. As stated, I just stopped playing at GC when first the Rules of Titan were not posted, then I had to look at this. If that dropping-out jeopardizes our standing in IAGO, so be it, not having seen much progress in longwinded IAGO.
