'ABCLargeCV': Now this one would not be so bad as the previous 'Double Chess'(192 squares), even though it says Jose Capablanca wasted his time playing Double Chess. (A general criticism was that that world champion did not study scores enough.) Despite piece density just over 20 percent, even lower than DC, players just would not use the double outer perimeter a lot. So Chess 12x12 is better than Capablanca-tested Double Chess, conveniently having the same piece-types.
