I'm not going to go all math and discuss what learning curves are or what they should be. I played this game face-to-face, and I found it very easy to learn, play, and enjoy. Usually it takes me awhile to learn games with many different piece types, especialy when many of the pieces are combo-pieces, or extermely powerful pieces. I can probably conjecture until the sun comes as to why I found this game relatively easy to learn. Could be the simple patterns of the legal moves of the pieces, or the fact that even some of the 'new' pieces are minor variants of existing pieces. Could be the ASCII art for all I know. The thing is, I found it easy to learn.
