Having read the rules but not yet played the game, I believe I can still
say that this looks like an excellent variant.  It should have beautiful
positional play.  And it's aesthetically very pleasing also.  The graphics
are well done, and the physical set looks great.  As a group A judge in
the 84-squares contest, I'm hoping it will be placed in my group, but even
if it isn't, I'd like to playtest it.  Would the inventors be interested
in an email game?
