 By Gary K. Gifford. Gryphon Aanca Chess. Large Variant with Gryphons, Aancas, and a few other not-so-common pieces. (12x12, Cells: 144) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Aanca is, I fear, Spanish for gryphon - in fact, the piece name Gryphon is a translation of Aanca as a Spanish piece name in Grande Acedrex. That's why I use a more distinctive name for the piece that moves Wazir-then-Bishop when I use both pieces (Archdeacon, as it still starts with A and the piece's lines of movement flank the Bishop's).
	This does not however detract from the quality of your variant, and I may well include a hyperlink to it on a couple of my own pages. It has also generated some interesting comments.
