Thank you, George for the contructive criticism of Field chess. I did like the the concept of the 8 archer-pawns to a side and shortening the board to 8x10 grid. It seemed to give the game of chess just a slight change of pace, which is what some people are looking for in this new era. Unfortunately, my late co-inventor and I were in disagreement over that matter. So, we settle on what you just critiqued. Perhaps, I'll submit a varinat of field chess in that fashion and see how our peers might respond to it. Sincerely Pete Leyva
