Thanks H.G.

It's plain I don't have the experience/imagination yet to go much beyond piece types that are precidented that I'm aware of. I also thought symmetry (and relative simplicity) in a piece type might lure more variant players to try, and perhaps stick with, such a 10x8 variant in the first place, but I may be wrong about what players on Game Courier find attractive - plenty of really weird stuff is played there, a lot. At any rate, I'll ponder your suggestions at my leisure.
