Thanks for rating the game (I've only had one other game of mine rated so far - one not on GC - and it was rated average, too).

A while back I made a preset for (10x8) 'Waffle Chess', a CV idea of mine that otherwise used the FIDE army. So far I only tried it against Greg and Joe. I tried to avoid it, but I found I needed to use a fast-castling rule-set of mine (from Wide Chess) to help make the game quite playable (IMO). We could play a game of that CV sometime soon, if I send you a personal invitation and you accept.

I have to sleep now - take care!
