'stuv' Switching Chess had 15 Comments in 2004, all favourable, and none for almost two years now. Not a single move either for a year in GC of Switching Chess, except completion of Jeju-Rodriguez one half year ago. FIDE having the obvious problem of stale, over-analyzed, computer-overwhelmed standard, several of us listed SwCh as in the top 10 for FIDE replacement, if CVPage were ever asked. TQuintanilla became disillusioned because of an earlier related form differing only in not allowing King to switch at all. As pointed out before, Switching is a Mutator that can be applied to virtually any chess form you make up. Still nice easy concept whether considered original with Tony or 3 years before elsewhere.
