Rich Nagel wrote on 2005-11-12 UTCExcellent ★★★★★I found out about this game back when I was in High School(1984-1987). My mom mentioned there was some kind of pseudo-chess tournament at an area mall - turned out to be this game. I got to meet Leonard, bought the game, went over the rules, and ended up like 4th place overall. My winnings paid for the cost of the game and some lunch. :) I've had the game ever since then. Until this website, I've not encountered anyone else who'd even heard of the game. A shame too, it's a fun game - faster paced than chess with a little more difficulty than checkers.. basically just fun to play.
