Great article long-forgotten. One Trenholme-discovered Mutator probably covers inclusively 200 CVPage later-developed ''CVs,'' subsuming them all, namely, ''FAERY CHESS, 1 piece has special moves throughout the game.'' That's it. Have we outdone in 15 years what Sam already had in 1994, before CVPage existed. Has Sam's list even been improved upon? Probably what existed in 1995 was sufficient for the first decades of 21st Century. What would you propose to add or replace the (very partial) List here. These are great games Trenholme found: Shatranj, Reflex, Capablanca, Transcendental, Refusal, Compromise, Pocket Knight, Two Move, Progressive, Explosion, Knighted Queen, Odds Games [another one co-opting many future specificities], Twin, Prohibition, Poker, Kinglet, Annihilation, Pawn's Game, Berolina, Circe, Rifle, Baroque, Super [one of these is enough], Pre-Chess, Checkless, Double Move, Emperor King....
