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.
