Hi all, I dont think there can be much advantage having first move, not
with so many armies on such a big board.

Yes 'Qin' have the dream start, most space around them, 'Chu' and
'Yan' have next best start.  I dont think this gives an advantage though
really, because of the nature of multi player games, anyone that is looking
stronger than the others will naturally become a target for everyone else,
hehe.

Interesting pieces 'crossbowman' and 'archer' and 'cavalry'.  I dont
know if i have seen such pieces before. 
 
Also the start position is interesting for 'Qin' in relation to 'Yan'
but mostly because of 'Chu' with 'crossbowman'.

Oh, do you have link to wiki site, i cant seem to find it.
