The idea for this game came out of another game mentioned on Scheming Mind.  I thought it would be interesting to change their approach to all Queens, and see how it went.  It apparently went pretty well with my playing it on Zillions.  It ends up being an interesting twist on misere' games.

Yes, it likely can be better.  Feel free to come up with something better.  When I do a game design, part of it is an inspiration for others to improve upon it.  Or, I will stumble across something also I feel is worth looking into.
