If Iron Guard is colorchanging, this game would be pointless. White would always win because it would be a race to see which side could reach the king first and that would be White. [It wouldn't just 'contend with the queen' it would be almost infinitely more powerful than the queen. The nearly invincible Mamra is worth quite a bit more than the queen. I often successfully sac my Queen in that game.]
