I was pleased to see this variant, related to the 'Great' and 'Grand' genre, but with two great pieces added per side [Cannons]. The pawn structure is an interesting side-step from the norm, with each side having two sets of double-pawns. The rules include 2 links to game design info, one Ying Yang based and the other more western which reminds me of the earlier guide by Fergus. For those who like the Capablanca variety, this game is worth a look. For those who want to get a few more ideas on game design, the linked info may be of interest. I wouldn't mind seeing this game in the upcoming tournament. Well done Namik.
