Mr. Gilman, how does mating fair on a board with such strong pieces, but a toroidal (Mobius, actually) geometry? I think I recall that boards with looped geometries and normal pieces have more difficult mating since the King cannot be cornered. On the other hand, it is easier to mate in Capablanca and Amazon Chess. Does this even out?

If you have no answer, perhaps Mr. Muller could run some tests on this game, or if it is too intensive, a smaller and equivalent game you could recommend.
