Respecting copyright and for the record, FRNBKQBNRF, what Aronson is now
calling 'Decimal', I name 'CHEOPS FALCON CHESS'in my 03.October.04
Comment under Falcon Chess Patent Excerpts here in CVP. For any historical
interest,'FRNBKQBNRF' is first written down in 1994 in my Inventor's
Notebook, with each page signed and periodically witnessed. At that time I
wrote out all 120 'paired-piece-symmetrical' variations of the ten spaces
(5x4x3x2x1) figuring K-Q as the fifth 'pair'. Of course, I did not
attempt to list all 10,000 to 400,000 possibilities, virtually all of them being
of no real chess interest.  Even among the 120, there are only a handful that
are important. FRNBKQBNRF is certainly one of them for 10x10 or 10x9; and
it is called CHEOPS but DECIMAL is okay too.
