I just made a pre-set for Hexagonal Hole Chess.  While doing so I noticed
that the red-side (in the rules) is missing 2 pawns... that has been
corrected in the pre-set. I used a Glinski board and Alfaerie graphics 'the Antoine Fourrière Set,' 
where blocks are blocks but holes are represented by crabs (as I saw no better substitute- 
perhaps one can think of large crabs residing at the bottom of the holes?);
Engineers as Windmills and Teleporters as the Star piece.

I've not looked at this game since it was originally posted.  Looking at
it now it does look like a real pain to play... not that it would be hard
to play, just that there is a lot to consider prior to making a move.

Anyway, the non move enforcing pre-set link is below.
