Vitya has always been a great opponent to play and I was wondering if he would ever come out with a variant of his own. It is quite evident that he was biding his time, because this variant turned out really well. I agree with Jeremy that this game is great. I don't think any of the pieces are over powered, they all work well together, and the recruitment adds a different dimension of the game. Good job, Vitya!
