I had an opportunity to play Near Chess this past weekend, and also 'Chess with Almost Different Armies': Near vs FIDE. They are both fine games. The rating of good is the highest I will give to a modest variant; this one deserves it. 
ps: congrats, Rich, someone else posted here ;-) - it really is a very nice game, I recommend it.
