Hi Jose

I got your email invite to play a game of Latr. XXI with you. At the moment I'm just mulling over the idea of playing online games once again (I've only ever played 2 games, both rather chess-like). Latr. XXI looks surprisingly complex for a game that has just 2 piece types. If I do make a comeback to online play, soon, I'd prefer to start with seemingly simpler variant(s), although I've noticed a number of people have tried Latr. XXI already, so I guess it's quite playable, and it's possible I'll try a game of it farther ahead in the year to come if I do become accustomed to (slow) online (chess variant) play (besides getting my feet wet at some point with any number of variants which seem truly alien to a regular & veteran tournament chess player like me).

I'm curious if you too have tried Canadian tournament chess play (i.e. been in Chess Federation of Canada rated events).
