Fergus, I thought it would be good if A. Black would play you since he created the game and then you, of course, brought it into reality. You are the 2 individuals who understand the game the most... so a game between the two Xorix Shogi theoretically best minds would be logical and looked forward to by onlookers. At the moment I am a bit fatigued from game analysis, but am still playing (play-testing) a few games of my own and of others. And I bumped into a good college friend of mine at a CV invitation to Grand Chess (we last spoke and saw each other in 1981)... so I could not miss the chance to play that game. But if you have no challengers within a few weeks I will consider giving XS a try. Best regards, and hopefully A. Black will accept your challenge.
