I have tried this week to add a rider piece. Unfortunately this proved to make the game worse as more opening moves were forced. So I reverted to an earlier version while keeping the idea that black has more pieces on the non-king side. This will be the final apothecary chess-classic game. I'm satisfied with the game.
