The site has moved to a new server, and there are now some issues to fix. For example, it looks like you can't post comments. I will look into that in the morning.

Thank you for your interest in Herb garden chess.

I do not follow what you mean by the following comment.


Large CV perhaps means Large Chess Variant, but GHI puzzles me.

You might perhaps like to have a look at my Quest Chess font which has
characters for Herb garden chess within it.

It is available from the following web page.

There is a pdf document using the font.

The font is also used in the following pdf documents.

They are part of a collection of pdf documents most of which do not
involve chess at all.

The marquesses mentioned above are pieces from the variant version of
garden chess.

Thank you for your interest in Herb garden chess.
