Usually, the Amazon (or General as you have called it) is considered to be too powerful to use in most variants this size. Has your play experiance demonstrated otherwise? <p> An amusing thought occurs to me -- how much would an Amazon/General be weakened if you made it royal, and the made the goal of the game to checkmate either the Amazon or the King? Would it balance the piece?
