Adrian, you designed an ingenious preset as a way of implementing the brilliant idea in this game, a transferable idea that I believe will open up new vistas for chess variants. Great ideas usually have predecessors, and this variant makes me hungry to learn more about this genre. Can anyone add some links to similar ideas? I believe David Howe may have a variant or two that uses something similar. Having played both versions, I'm prepared to rate this game excellent (both versions); it's simple and elegant. In the log for our game of 5hess, you mention that pawns in 5hess can travel more than five moves (a pawn in FIDE will travel a maximum of six moves during its lifespan). I'm glad you've finally posted these great games. Well done, Adrian!
