Eurasian is a top ten at NextChess informal threads started 2008 and should become higher than Big Board and couple others there. If anyone is looking for a vote -- there may be other criteria than a poll -- Eurasian already has mine. Eurasian advantages one of Fourriere's principles to the letter that the best cvs of a track interesting to mainstream chess people should key off the standard western rnbkqp. It would still be ''Eurasian'' if eventually found to be suitable for less radical 8x10 too. Eurasian, excellent featured or recognized, would be comparable to Sissa in adding novel natural piece-type(s). Coherent may already be the better form of the Sissa inspiration. Sissa/Coherent would be my second recommendation.
