only one small complaint: if the king exchanges places w/ the seer on the opposite square color, then for the rest of the game you will have 2 seers on the same color squares! Since they are colorbound pieces, this seems like a problem. perhaps the solution is to only allow the king exchange w/ the same(sqare)-colored seer--then both seers stay on opposite tracks. Perhaps another solution would be to allow one of the seers to move 1 square orthogonally next time one of them moves--if both have ended up on the same color. The game looks interesting! :)
