'ABC,LargeCV': 'The form of partnership is suggestive of the card game Bridge, appropriate for a river with two such distinguished cities on it and thus so impressive a range of bridges.'--Charles Gilman, supporting the provision that one player drops out at times, becoming 'Dummy' like in Bridge. When the theme cuts so sharply across the rules, it probably detracts from play-worthiness. Excellent 'theme': a third criterion to judge games, to go with playability and central idea. There are 8 Marshalls(R+N).

It is good to see the contributions from a true chessfan and one who is ready to give an honest critique of the games invented and offered here. I enjoy the possibility of the game, and the division of powers given to the pieces in this style of gameplay. Thanks, Charles, for your participation.
