Long ago I saw something similar in the flesh, but with the Bishops and Knights the other way round (as in standard 2-handed Chess). Why have you swapped them round in this variant? Another question, which applies equally to the variant that I saw live (but which I did not think of then as I was so young), is what moves are valid for a Bishop moving through the eight central cells, and for a Knight moving through the borders between them? Good answers could lead to an uprating to Excellent!
