This is very nice, but I find myself wondering about the army selection process. I can see several possibilities: <ul> <li> Each player writes down their section secretly, and the selections are simultaneously revealed; </li> <li> White makes their selections, announces them to black, then black selects; </li> <li> White makes one of their choices, then black chooses a piece, then white, etc. until both players have chosen their Queen, Rook, Bishop and Knight; </li> <li> White selects their Queen, then black selects a Queen, then white selects their Rook, then black selects a Rook, then white selects their Bishop, then black selects a Bishop, then white selects their Knight, then black selects a Knight; </li> <li> Like about, but in order Knight, Bishop, Rook, Queen. </li> </ul> Clearly all of the above would work reasonably well, but is there a prefered way to select the armies?
