i think the rules are pretty clear, layman and easily work without any modification and am surprised that so many people, who seem familiar with so many gaming dynamics (that i am ignorant of for the most part) are so thrown and have so many questions and misunderstandings about this profoundly simple and highly entertaining game. read the appendix as written and enjoy a classic themed variant on jasoomian chess. burroughs also explained the "historical" significance of orange and black pieces and the moves of the odwar and princess are in no way complicated beyond their english written value. i think people are splitting hairs in the extreme.
