I am still playing the opening moves in one of these games. However, I've noticed that the knights are immediately under attack from the bishops from the very first move (provided a central pawn is pushed,) and once they're captured the bishops immediately threaten to capture the smothered rooks. Also, they're only protected by the two new major pieces.

Objectively there is too much power for such a - relatively - small board, but it is nice - though difficult - to play. The Unicorn is not easy to handle, but it is a very elegant piece.
