Timothy had a revision of the rules for Bipartite Chess written and ready to send in prior to the deadline (a return to an earlier version of the game, actually) when our home computer crashed. It took over a month to get the machine running again, and by that time it was too late to get the changes posted for consideration in the 43 Squares Contest, since the first round of judging had already begun. Glenn Overby has indicated that he will post the modified rules to the game once the 43 Spaces Contest is over. Timothy wanted me to pass on his thanks, Glenn!
