I've downloaded and played this game a couple of times and while I think
that it is a good chessvariant I also think that the author coul duse a
dose of modesty ;)
This is a good chessgame so don't think that I don't appreciate it but
it's not the best I've ever played and it's not the 'new chess'.
Perhaps I'm wrong and perhaps this is the new chess and if it is I will
humbly admit that I was wrong.

It has its points though and the one I like the most is the Jester.
Zillions seem to have trouble of planing the use of the Jester and put it
in at the first move pawn. I'm not a chessprogrammer so I don't know if
this is something that most chessprograms would do or if its just a Z
problem.

Good work Karl.
