This is quite a hard page to follow. It took me three readings to understand it fully, although it didn't help that I was exceptionally busy with submissions of my own. At first reading I thought that the same names were being used for different pieces in different games. The rebranding of pieces even when their 'powers are identical to' the standard pieces is a major obfuscation, particular reversing the sexes of the royal couple for no apparent reason - at least, none that I could spot anywhere on the page. Then there are the huge gaps under the array diagrams, making for a lot of extra scrolling between the different games. What are these gaps for? It might be that the actual rules of these games are easy to understand if presented well, but they are not presented well on this page.
