Hi,Claudio. In my opinion optimal setup it means symmetry in all cases as a chess is symmetric by the nature. Good example Classical Chess,1.Setup-White-Black, 2.White or Black (right and left flanks),3.Pawns protection,4.Pieces density, 50% free squares and 50% non-free (Capablanca chess 8x10,Classic Chess8x8 and so on).For a board 10x10 if we use 25 pieces from each side(then 50% pieces density) the setup will be not symmetrical and increasing quantity of pieces for exp. 28-30 from each side will increase duration of a game and positions to become too heavy and I think 48%-52% pieces density is okey in this case. For exp. L.Smith`s Demon Chess -48%, Samarcanda Chess -52%, Opulent Chess -48% and so on.

I like it!

The idea of use a 10x10 board is very nice and the array of the pieces is
very ellegant.

I just have a few questions:

How did you got this piece/board ratio?

You said that the optimum number would be 25, why not use 26 (perhaps with
camels or knightriders), instead of 24, or a 2 cell piece (wich I'm still
thinking if it's really worth)?
