Nine years(!) later I came back to this page. I still play this exellent game occationally, mostly because it's quick and because I happen to have the nice wooken board lying around that I made (on the backside of a Tree-player chess board which I also made at the time). I must say this is one of my all time favorite games and *the* favorite chess variant.

I decided to do something to promote this game, so I created a Wikipedia article for this game today, where you can also see a photo of my homemade plywood board. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplomat_chess

Many thanks for this game Carlos!

[Edit] I also found an error in the initial position of the pieces: The outer circle is line 1 (a1-n1), not line 3 (a3-n3).
