In the one other comment here, Charles Gilman liked this year 2000 CV, because of the Bishops. Notice the four Bishops are arranged symmetrically and on opposite color bindings even though there are odd number of files, eleven. Beyond that novelty, the goal of bare King requires each player to give up a piece each turn in addition to regular move. This was a 32-turn contest, and Attrition games run a maximum of 32 moves. Squire has its own move as medieval "Man" and also enhances the side's Knight move two different ways when the two are adjacent (see the effect in Attrition rules). That keeps Knight apace the others on large board without adding some arbitrary Camel option.
