The Comment You're Replying To

That Mad Chess was 'extensively commented'? Seven comments: discount the first by inventor himself. Second comment says in a few words that it makes chess 'unisexual.' Better 3rd and 4th comments do not seem to be aware of Betza's Chess Different Armies. That 4th compares the pieces among themselves; I have tried to add comparisons far and wide among disconnected large CVs. 5th comment cites Betza at last. 6th comment ridiculously compares Mad Chess to Ultima. 7th comment for 'F+' generally pans chess-unequal-armies types. Moderately commented back then, Mad Chess deserves some attention for some interesting pieces.
