The game plays very well. The Minister and High Priestess both provide very interesting forks.

I thought the Bishops were placed oddly, though I know they were set to mimic Capablanca Chess. For such a large board, neither mine nor my opponent's were in play much (or at all). Potentially switching the Bishops and the High Priestess/Minister in the opening setup might fix this, as well as protect every pawn in the opening array and prevent white from procuring too strong of a center.

I favorited this game. Very inspiring short range piece combos and combat.
