I saw the AI sacrifice it's queen without getting one in return. Also,
because of the shape of the board, bishop plus king can capture a
king(rook plus king would only stalemate if the checkmate rule wasn't
abolished in favour of the capture king rule). Promotion also seems very
hard(although the idea used was nice), and knights have reduced value as
they can't reach most of the board in a few turns, unlike all the sliding
pieces.

Its a pretty good variant, I'll tell you that.
