'DEF,LargeCV': Suspiciously Berolina-like, this same Pawn actually originates not here but in 1998 Missoum's 9x9 Rotating Chess. However, that one has Camels and other errors, and Double Diamond is better implementation. Unlike Berolina, these Pawns have additional lateral-orthogonal capture direction and one fewer(one) 'traveling' direction. Simple ideas with strategic implications are the best, but this is not so original apparently as the great Eight-Stone Chess, because of that other unacknowledged game. Removing the remote portions of the board makes sense in related principle, a minimalist approach whereever possible.
