By play here, Latrunculi by Jose and Symmetric by Carlos are way ahead of every other one by modern designers, looking at last year and other lengths. I don't think of Korea, Thai, Chinese, or Shogi as chess variants, because I've always known of them. So that even more puts  Latrunculi and Symmetric the top two. If you don't play it, don't rate it used to be the maxim, too.  Face it, that any newer CV has long odds to be played formally more than couple of times all of 2017, except by the inventor. There are not just the thousand Game Courier ones, but another 2-3 thousand without presets, and most of my recent 'excellent' to CVP games I notice have no Preset.  Then there are generic ways to generate thousands and even millions of CVs. For examples, "Polypiece" by Betza for millions and "91.5 Trillion" for...you guessed it. There are as many rules combinations as possible game scores -- or two different orders of infinity.
