Grand Shatranj. Grand Shatranj. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The previous poster asked this question:
'Is there way to use both Lightning warmachine and rook?'
My first thought was 'No, they are alternates of the same piece.' 
My second thought was 'It would take David Paulowich to manage that.'
My third thought was to rip off David's excellent Opulent Lemurian
Shatranj. And since my game is nowhere near as subtle, well-crafted, and
thought out as his, I couldn't call this straight rip 'Opulent Grand
Shatranj', so I give you:
/play/pbm/play.php?game%3DGilded+Grand+Shatranj%26settings%3DGilded+Grand+Shatranj

This variant should provide a good range of decent firepower, considering
most pieces are worth at least a rook in value. I don't expect it to be
all that subtle, though.
