Buy-your-own-army variant on a big board; 26 piece types. (11x11, Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]M. Howe wrote on 2002-11-11 UTCGood ★★★★I agree that the rank of yeomen prevents nightriders from making captures on turn one. But after a yeoman has moved, such as on turn one, a first-rank nightrider can attack and pin one enemy yeomen. I'm not saying that this breaks the game, but I prefer games in which white, on his first move, cannot threaten or pin black. I also wonder about the accelerated promotion of yeomen. They can promote after only three moves. Will this make the game too tactical and deprive it of some interesting endgames? I guess I'll have to play the ZRF to know for sure how this all works out.
