I'm very pleased to have invented the game that was the inspiration for
Divergent Chess, which looks like a good game.  My only concern is the
problems that might arise because of the difficult of mating a king that
can capture like a queen, and especially the difficulty of mating a
promoted king that has full queen powers.  If these king rules turn out to
work well in the context of the other piece powers, then Divergent Chess
might turn out to be a better game than Asymmetric Chess was (now renamed
Biform Chess).
