'1ABCLargeCV': How would this array's symmetry be characterized? It is not to be found in any opening manual. Cardinal appears to be the correct substitution here for Queen. Pawns are omni-orthogonal-directional and not promotable. 'Either army [of one's two] may move first'. In 'Clockwise' variant, each armies' pieces capture only pieces of one of the two opposing armies. Those two rules combined especially point to interesting tactics!
