The 'Queen' in this game moves like an 'Alibaba'.
It does say there is a special rule about queen capturing another queen and 
to look in 'rules' section, but i can't seem to see anything.
Edit: oh capture might be 'concourse of queens' rule.

Anyway, would this be the first appearance of an 'Alibaba' in a game?
Anyone know of an earlier game with the 'Alibaba', or, any old game it 
plays in?
