I'm not rating the page poor, but the game (maybe less if there was one). based on Ralph Betza's ideas on Colourboundness and material value and not counting Black's King or Maharajah's King's move, Black (FIDE)'s army is worth 39.4 Pawns. Without promotion, it's 32.60 plus initial double step for new pawns it's 32.85 (estimation for lameness of double step used was fnD = 1/18 of a Crab, then / 7 for Initial) the Maharajah is worth a cringeworthy 9.75 Pawns, estimating a Bishop - Ferz on an 8x8 board to be worth 2.40 Pawns. White can force mate from turn 1.
