Continuing alphabetically retrospectively thru 'Large CVs': Do not be deceived by seeing 132 squares. Most of the squares are common to both halves, and there are only 84 unique spaces to move. There are 14 piece-types, the same number as Large Variant Contest winner Vyremon Chess on its 132 squares. The independent two rows of the two halves evince vague similarity to Altair, which comes later. Antoine Fourriere knows I like Jacks & Witches, Pocket Polypiece, Bifocal, and Chess on Larger Board, all his inventions. This Chessma might be too complex to go in detail into its strategy.
