'1ABCLargeCV' Wanting to re-connect with our LargeCV thread, suspended 2 1/2 years, when not Commenting at all, have to start somewhere. The previous Comment(Feb. 2005) notes about this 4-Armies, invented in 2000, that its Pawns are 'omni-orthogonal-directional', so even Pawns can be a symmetric piece with a little devising. While Legan, played at BrainKing, has a somewhat similar starting array with pieces cornered, the Pawns move diagonally and capture orthogonally there, Berolina-like. Clever, unusual win conditions in 4-Armies include getting your two Kings adjacent to each other. Nice game two-player not four-.
