Voyager's long gone now. It was overwritten with the modest variants, and I even overwrote and renamed the master document on my own computer. You can see from the orioginal comments that it wasn't worth keeping. It can no more return than can the spacecraft after which it is named! So if anyone wants to hold on to any of the others that I'm considering overwriting (3 to the 5, Anglis Qi modified to add Cannons and Arrows, Crooked Board Chess, Emperor's Nobility 3d Latrunculi, Epping Forest Chess, Gateway Chess, Half Shoxiang, Intrusive Squares, Kamil Crater Chess, Maharajah's Well Chess, Partnership Mitregi, Pawn the Brain, Sextuple Besiege Wellisch, and Sultan's Elephant Chess - and I am now also reviewing Neutral Subject Chess), speak up now.
