The Comment You're Replying To

Still in the 'ABC's in review of Large CVs, here's one never commented, never played probably except by Blanchard and Hogarty. Despite the name 'Assassination'(1998), it appears the game will revolve around the ten Teleporters. A T switches any other piece to its own square and then itself goes to Home Row, i.e. rank 3(8). I think there is only same-colour 'switching', but it is not entirely clear. This 'swap' is like Swapper of Rococo (V.R. Parton's Chimaerine), except the T goes elsewhere. That makes it different from Switching Chess' way of swapping too. The disruption in established positions 'T's can wreak is reminiscent of Lavieri's Alpha Centauri and its Rotor, just commented; and having a whole row (the Home Row) for the Teleporter to go connects to 'Positional 3D Chess', itself a panoply of games featuring promotion to any square in an entire row.
