The first known variant of chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]George Duke wrote on 2005-01-16 UTCYes, I should have noted Ralph Betza's CVP comments too are signed 'ghohmon', when quoting his (Chat. 11.May.02) statement 'the average of my chess skill and variant skill is far higher than...divine Parton or superhuman Fischer.'

Lots more insight in just that one comment.
