Missing description (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-07-03 UTCThank you for these home truths about this variant, it did seem fanciful. It is true that, as Chess variants are an obscure area of interest, the friends who regularly meet me face to face do not play them, so I rely on analysis by other CVP members through comments on these pages. Representing such a complex game graphically is also a problem, particularly the need to diverge from my usual usage to cope with five kinds of one-step piece. My worst variant prior to Voyager, Great Herd, suffers in this respect too as the compounds' names are too similar in meaning to distinguish between using the ffen diagram images - which is why I have not updated it. I don't wish to leave a large number of poor variants on the site, so if the consensus is that this is a terrible variant I shall withdraw it and recycle the page - this kind of page appears to allow such techniques. Initially I shall just set most sections to blank, with the subtitle 'variant withdrawn' and then, if as is likely no-one demands reinstatement, I might use it to list some relatively simple variants to see whether any of them are worth expanding on.
