Looking for feedback on my 'Keeps & Moats Chess' design and implementation
... I'll even resort to a little bribery:  I'll offer a *free
full-version* copy of the game to whoever first provides something
constructive. ;-)

I've just recently finished the computer version of the game and was
curious for any feedback from people who play and know chess variants
well.  So far most of the traffic and feedback for the game has been from
other game programming hobbyists and from general abstract and strategy
gamers who happened upon my site.

Anybody here try it?  If so, what are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance ... :-D
