I found out about this game back when I was in High School(1984-1987). My
mom mentioned there was some kind of pseudo-chess tournament at an area
mall - turned out to be this game.  I got to meet Leonard, bought the
game, went over the rules, and ended up like 4th place overall.  My
winnings paid for the cost of the game and some lunch. :)

I've had the game ever since then.  Until this website, I've not
encountered anyone else who'd even heard of the game.  A shame too, it's
a fun game - faster paced than chess with a little more difficulty than
checkers.. basically just fun to play.
