Wow! Talk about hard to quantify. This is a *really* wide open game, particularly with pawns able to just march right into each other. At some point when playing this game, as the field opens up, there may come a 'meltdown', a chain reaction of captures by pieces that become more and more powerful that doesn't stop until the game ends. When trying to imagine end game scenarios, it may boil down to a handful of cubic movers, each of which can move almost anywhere on a mostly open feild, and whoever has more wins. Still, a geat idea for a game that uses cubic moves.
