No, my argument that the Mastodon/Pasha is an interesting piece
builds on a few games against my two Mastodon Chess variants
here (10x10) and here here (8x10). I exemplify with a Mastodon
king attack. Earlier, in this forum, Mr. Kaufmann gave an example of an
elegant Mastodon combination. Important endgame properties are
these: King + Mastodon wins against King + Bishop or Knight, and
draws against King + Queen. The Mastodon is stronger than a rook.
