The Pizza Kings. An experimental army for Chess with Different Armies, with lots of calories.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Pizza Kings is interesting Chess Different Armies force. At first blush Betza's own Nutty Knights and Remarkable Rookies are the best two armies, weighing heavily mere popularity to get a baseline. Betza calls those two evenly matched and well-conceived. Here credit John Lawson's having developed new pieces for the occasion of another 39-point mix. Think of Sausage as all leaps by Narrow Knight, horizontal Wazir, Ferz, or Trebouchet(0,3) at option. The Mushroom Betza already started in 1996 and Lawson adopts. The Pepperoni happens to be forwardly the new CDA Spartan Lieutenant of the comment or two immediately below, turned sideways. Lawson's Meatball is deceptively strong, being of all five atoms, A,F,D,W (which 4-part is Mastodon), plus N the latter forward only. For fun and enterprise, a follow-up comment soon will create a table of features of the 15 to 20 Chess Different Armies from mid-nineties to date. Though Betza started CDA in 1977, aside from just a couple really old ones, it appears the finished Armies in vogue are out of precisely the last 20 years, coincident with CVP itself. Year 2001 Pizza Kings a Cheese Different Armies.
