homage to Grand Chess in his own way.'  

GKG response: But I see that Mr. Scanlon wrote: 'Despite its admittedly
minor aesthetic and functional flaws...[refering to Grand Chess] then adds
'Grand Chess is easily the best and most playable reinvention of Chess I
have ever seen.'  

So, he is stating that it has minor aesthetic and functional flaws; and is
elswhere stating that he has taken this game and improved it.... has taken
the Grand Chess and made it Grander Chess, aye, there's the rub.
