Thanks for the rating.

Personally, I am not very satisfied with the starting position. Switching the Queen and the Archbishop, I believe, would make a better game because it balances the Knight-compounds. However, I chose this one because RBQCKABR is basically the Gothic Chess position, which is patented.


I updated the page to introduce a minor Shuffle variant. This gives a bigger opening book, but doesn't eliminate opening altogether.
