Spartan Chess is different armies, of which there are examples only 1% or 2% of 4000 CVPage CVs. What about matching Spartan with instead of common F.i.d.e. army, the great Betza line-ups, Nutty Knights, Colourbound Clobberers, Remarkable Rookies? Muller nominated it provisionally #30 for Track I Next Chess evaluation. It will surely surpass last-ranked Seirawan Chess, which is just a drop-mechanism Mutator. Supporting material here and in the Spartan Chess separate thread compares to Trenholme's Schoolbook Chess(#10), the ''Carrera'' chosen to represent that cluster at the three-year-old NextChess project. Article, http://www.chessvariants.org/index/displaycomment.php?commentid=24553, shows of 25 NextChesses ranked, 26-30 being provisional, Trenholme cares enough to develop opening ideas.
