For my own comparison of this fine variant to the equally fine McCooey's Hexagonal Chess, see my review for the latter variant.

Decades ago I saw values given for the pieces in Glinski's (that would seem to apply to McCooey's too): P=1; B=3; N=4; R=5; Q=9. I'd add that I estimate the fighting value of K=4 approximately (though naturally it cannot be traded).
