'(Omega of Maura) > (Omega of Gilman) > (Omega of Canada)' - This may
well apply to any comparison between two very different variants
coincentally having the same name, and a third based on the better of the
two. Note that I never claimed that my variant was Omega Chess (of either
kind), and carefully chose a different name, though one clearly
identifying its origins.
'Inferiorly, Delta and Lambda player must always and normally look at the
piece symbol to tell...' - Actually it is the Delta that is a Maura
original with the Omega, and the Alpha a Gilman extra with the Lambda.
'26.5 and 33.7, for difference on only 7.2 degrees.' - Each piece
rotates by exact multiples of 45°. To tell which kind of move they make a
player need simply distinguish a long and a short side. A lesser inventor
might have created a piece roitating only between Nightrider moves -
turning by mind-boggling sums of 37° and 53° turns!
