Interesting.

However, the Game Courier link leads to the commercial Omega Chess, not
this game.  The game however, seems pretty interesting, and the
'opposite
direction immunity rule' should add more stratergy to the game.  

I further suggest that this game could be expanded to have more pieces. 
For example, a piece shaped as a diamond that could travel in two
opposite
directions.  However, it has no immunity from opposite direction attacks.

Just a thought.
