Thanks for your feedback! Your comments are very useful.

Speaking of the 68 squared board with camel 'citadels', I've got one
more thing I would like to be discussed: Wouldn't be an improvement if
those citadels had 3 squares? One behind and another on the side of the
rook? I saw somewhere on the net a board like that and it could maybe be a
good idea for avoiding stalemates. For example for endgames with rooks..
Because in this game the extra piece Camel doesent add any value to the
endgame (most probably it 'goes down' in the middle game..) Which means
in the endgame it would be pretty much be normal chess, but with citadels
the risk of draw would be bigger!!! Unless the stalemate rules were
changed..

Thanks once again! :)
