Again 9x9. Looking to expand the 9x9 roster of Excellents, we upgrade Omega for creativity in so-long-ago year of invention. Two piece-types, one Omega and all the rest Deltas. Lacklustre Canadian Omega Chess took the same name more than two decades later of this Puerto Rican Omega Chess. Centennial Chess also uses changes of orientation for its Spearsman in 1990's after the 1970s' Gabriel Maura's Omega. ''Draws are rare.'' Carlos, did Gabriel Maura work on any of his games in 1990's and 2000's?
