''A Siamese-Twin mixture,'' Chessma 84 strategy is complex not least because most, but not all, squares are common to both boards. There are 84 unique spaces to move for the 14 piece-types. Chessma is described as Ultima-OrthoChess hybrid. Pusher is forerunner of later Witch in Jacks & Witches. Pusher is also related to but different from Ultima alternate piece Repeller (Repeller captures), which comes from Robert Abbott himself. The Chessma Encloser may teleport to capture like in Go, completing the surrounding of the victim. Swapper was taken earlier in 2002 from Rococo, and Rococo uses Swapper to replace Ultima Coordinator. Swapper is V.R. Parton's Ximaera or Chimaerine. (Rococo does invent chiefly the Cannon Pawn itself and border-square mechanism.) Antoine Fourriere is still rated at top of general category in Game Courier. (ABCLargeCV)
