There are two Superchess being discussed, and more than two exist. This is the poor one, because of recycling stock pieces. Uncreative designers gravitate in tropism to multi-piece forms with many substitutions available, as here. Remarked before, the rating does not try to estimate the value of handiwork accompanying Superchess and Monarch. Programmer Mueller was taking up its cause partly because of its place of origin, we speculate. It is interesting that there are many better CVers of Holland, including the author here Bodlaender and his own designs.
