I found the link worked, but the email address bounced.  I tried to send this as a message:

I am a bit confused about the set up regarding Connect Shoot Kill.  Is the only set up available the print out?  If so, then I was curious what the role of the Joker and Wizard are.

Second, I see that the game is on Boardgame Geek:

I don't see a link to the rules page you have up.  I was thinking you may want to update that entry with a link to your blogspot site.

Lastly, in trying to understand the game rules, I thought of maybe an idea for a variant that would be doable using chess set that might work (needs to be tweaked).  Have players have their own set. Once they create a box, they put one of their pieces in and can kill opponent's pieces that are on the board as they place it, along the lines of what you had.  Pardon me if your rules are close to this, and it is spelled out.
