Should there be an image with the page for Polymorph Chess? In my view, the top half of the page is blank.

Or since the starting setup can look like chess there is no diagram?

The game does sound interesting. Only once have I played a variant where chess pieces can convert to another piece. In Waterloo a knight can merge with an "elite-guard" to form a "joker". It was a rather elaborate game, and I'm scheduled to play it again in a few weeks. Games with one or two morphing/merging piece abilities can be fun.:)
