Hey, is it ok if I add, to the next release of my Schoolbook Zillions file, a version of Capablanca Shantraj with the Schoolbook opening setup to the list of variants? I think it will make for an interesting game. Who knows, if Greg gets time, he may even figure out the values of the knight + wazir + dabbah and knight + ferz + bishop on an 8x10 board and add a 'Capablanca Shantraj' to ChessV. BTW, what's the official opening setup for Capablanca Shantraj? RNBAQKMBNR or RNABQKBMNR? (A = Ferz + Alfil + Knight, M = Wazir + Dabbah + Knight)
