Yesterday night I have made some tests, And I must admit Michael Nelson is
right, if the forward Platypus movement is reduced to one with exception
of movement from first rank, the game slows too much. Perhaps if the range
is equal for the horizontal and vertical, say range two except from first
rank, the result is better, but the game has its own idiosincracy as is,
and now I accept that, but first I have to try for being convinced.
Platypus is a clever piece in the game, it can promote to a piece more
powerful that any other piece in the game, but the promotion is not a
necessary win for the team of the promoted Platypus, it depends on
position. I like this 'Australian' game, but the duck faced Platypus
made me take some minutes of atemption
