Great Shatranj makes Betza triples too, but with the Knight instead. Templar Chess (2006), that Joyce analyzes with Great Shatranj and Falcon Chess, has not really Betza triple, because Templar slides to Alfil. Now it starts ''maintaining many of the same opening possibilities as standard Chess.'' So, Alvarez de la Campa intends it as Joyce-invented ''Track One'' consideration. Actually the last year 2014 so far is Great Shatranj, King's Court and Three Player (Zubrin). Templar was back in the second trio for year 2010. Templar is close counterpart of Omega Champion (WAD). However, Templar (DF + slide to A) becoming colourbound, as stated, does not leap to Alfil, as we would expect if really patterning after Omega Champion.
