Three items of news for Queens or Castles: 1) Least important: On the Rules Page I placed a 3D computer graphic (that I made) showing how I think a real 3D Diplomat piece would look (based on the related Diplomat Alfaerie Graphic). 2) I made a preset for this game. See following link. Graphics in the preset do not match those in the rules 100% as I did not see a link to the miscellaneous piece set that included the Jester and Diplomat. But the substitutes are easy to understand. Rules are not enforced by the pre-set. /play/pbm/play.php?game%3DQueens+or+Castles+%3F%26settings%3DQueensCasltes 3) I've tested the most recent L.L. Smith ZRF (Beta version) of this game (not yet released). L. L. Smith has done a great job in getting some tricky functionality to work properly ... I am aware of some of the behind the scenes tinkering with code, and Larry is certainly an impressive and respectable coder. Hopefully we will see the final ZRF in the very near future.
