Several experimental games to test whether perfect symmetry makes a game better.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Derek Nalls wrote on 2005-02-17 UTC'The idea is to change only one factor, asymmetry to symmetry, and see whether this is an improvement.' ____________________________________ Upon reflection, I agree. Yes, it is imperative to isolate one variable to stay on-track with your test objective. I got distracted by Aronson's ideas for better games (which have a worthy place elsewhere). I settle upon 'Mormon Chess' as my favorite (although I find its strange name unsettling). I wish its number of board spaces and pieces were closer to the game it is being tested against, though.
