My nominaton is specifically for Spartan Chess, i.e the Spartan army vs. FIDE. Most armies proposed for CDA are awful and offending my taste. Apart from FIDE the Clobberers are really the only army that has pieces of high-enough regularity to not qualify as 'ugly'. But it falls short a long way by the imaginative design of the Spartan army, with its dual Kings, the completely novel duple-check rule, and the alternative Hoplite Pawn. So the fact that 'I dabble in Betza' can NOT be taken as evidence that a nomination of Spartan Chess can be taken as nomination of CDA in general, anymore as the fact that I dabble in Shogi means that Spartan Chess meand Shogi, or the fact that I have dabbed in Falcon Chess means that Spartan Chess means Falcon Chess...
