I don't like to be negative, and will revise this rating if you can answer a few questions to my satisfaction:

1. What's the point of promoting a Pawn into piece belonging to your opponent? Why give him free pieces? 

2. Your Cthulhu will be next to impossible to checkmate. Such a game can only be drawish.
