This game is ideally suited for implementation in Fairy-Max: all pieces are normal Chess pieces with straightforward moves and no side effects. So it is just a matter of adapting the table of move steps in the ini file. I guess I should test the equivalence of the armies one day with it. The fact that it is a shuffle game also provides an ideal way to avoid duplicate games: I can just start with randomly shuffled setups.
