Cataclysm. Large board game with short-range pieces designed to be dramatic without being overly complicated or dragging on too long. (12x16, Cells: 192) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The preset I'm using for the game between nGreg and myself is decent:
/play/pbm/play.php?game=Cataclysm&log=mageofmaple-joejoyce-2007-243-009
Just don't know where the blank preset is located. I suspect someone familiar with the naming of these games and presets could figure it out...
It's a LOT easier for me to use this preset that the other. I'm a big fan of using symbolism on pieces to indicate their actual moves. I use such a system in all my shatranj variants - including Chieftain, which is a shatranj variant, actually.
