The idea of marking ten years of these pages with ten-direction pieces is
an interesting one. Ironically a couple of variants of mine posted just
before the contest was announced use such pieces - the Nitan in Goldchess
and the Caman in Silverchess (see
http://www.chessvariants.org/other.dir/gs_chess.html for both). These
pieces even have ten moves - the Knight moves plus the two forwardmost
Camel moves and vice versa. It also occurs to me that an enhanced Queen
could have ten directions as well - as a Viceace (Queen+2 front Knight
moves) or Viceacme (Queen+2 front Camel moves)
	Good to see another locally-themed variant. Quite a collection is being
built up across N. Europe.
