Michael, Thanks for taking the time to review Cascudo and for your kind comment. The hexagonal format(with pieces easily able to cascade into each other initially) seemed to lend itself particularly well to the cascade idea. I would agree with your suggestion that in translating the idea to a squared board the pieces might have to be given rather more powerful, flexible moves to provide sufficient movement options from the off. Presumeably too the king might be made even more powerful than the combination of existing queen and knight! Regards - dtj
